Russell Shorto article in the NYT: Amsterdam is losing its character

Jump to last reply

The NYT travel section carries an article by Russell Shorto about the increasing homogenous character of Amsterdam. Apart from the fact that he's got ultra wealthy Amsterdam friends, apparently, who can loan him a cool canal house, he has a number of interesting observations.

For instance, that part of Amsterdam's character (or any Dutch city really) is that its grandness was built for its citizens, not for royalty or oligarchs and that this is now changing, with more and more real estate being bought up as pied a terres, and an influx of "capital". Hope the links works
