Walking in Amsterdam I am always surprised to see something I hadn't seen before. This apartment building is so nice situated at the corner like the bow of a ship. I had a little "deja-vu" feeling, it reminded me of another building I had seen.
I looked on the internet and found the flatiron building in NewYork.
Ok, you can't compare it with the Amsterdam building but I hope you understand what I mean.
Anyway New York was named "New Amsterdam" in 1626 by the colonists of the Dutch Republic, so there is a relation between the two cities.
