Your apartment is in one of the most interesting parts of Amsterdam, the Jordaan. The construction of the Jordaan began in 1612. It was an area for the poor workmen and it was originally a leftwing or socialist stronghold. Many riots started here in the nineteenth century. Now it is has become an expensive and an upscale neighborhood with many modern art galleries, arty shops, bars restaurants and cafes. This area is also known for the lively and busy street markets held nearby once per week, including the well known organic food market on the Noordermarkt.
Just beyond the Jordaan you will find the Anne Frank house. This museum is dedicated to the Jewish girl Anne Frank who hid with her family from the Nazi persecution during the Second World War. Eventually Anne Frank and her family were deported to the German concentration camps with many other Amsterdam Jews who did not survive the holocaust.
The famous Dutch painter Rembrandt lived and worked in the Jordaan. He is buried in the Westerkerk Church which is located at the edge of this district. This church was built between 1620 and 1631 as a protestant church. The spire, called the western tower or Westertoren is 85 meters high and is the highest church tower in Amsterdam.
