Street performers along with restaurants, which are also often at the top. They serve you well, and it's a very appropriate place to give you a break. The Neo-Renaissance style theatre building stands out. You will also appreciate the Hampshire Hotel Amsterdam American (art Nouveau) and its extraordinary coffee. Not to mention the Bulldog Palace, which was the first police station in the city, in the place where the carriages that arrived to Amsterdam were unloaded, and which has a very amusing history. In the next street, in what is now a Steak House, remains the symbol of what was the House of the caretaker of the carriages. It is a good thing that a local guide explains the whole story, because it is very curious. And at night it stays as one of the liveliest spots in the city. In winter, when there are few tourists, they install a skating rink for the locals. A very funny place, and with a lot of history.
