hkskyline's 2009 AMSTERDAM Photo Collection #2

With so much water and canals, Amsterdam is a great place to own a houseboat. This one even comes with a green roof!





It's quite amazing how these buildings can last several hundred years and are still habitable.









With some renovations, new windows, and perhaps a wall scrub, this place doesn't look anything near its age.













Quite serene, and it's easy to get canal views in this part of town.







This historic building is now a shopping mall. Interesting conversion ...













I noticed a number of old buildings were slanted or had some cracks. Is it safe? This looks quite eerie.
