noord

Amsterdam Noord (north), on the northern side of the River IJ, is one of the fastest-changing areas of the city. Previously home to older neighbourhoods and industry, recent years have brought major transformation as culture (NDSM Wharf, EYE Filmmuseum, etc) replaced shipyards and factories, and new housing has changed the landscape of the waterfront.
