Amsterdam authorities bought 18 properties from Geerts, with the aim of developing the area with fashion designers and other upscale businesses. I can only describe the area as down market compared with Geleenstraat and Hunsestraat. The gambling houses invested in luxury furnishings and gradually they became brothels employing up to 30 women. Prostitution itself is not illegal; however, public solicitation, living on the earnings of a prostitute, and maintaining a brothel are illegal.

Only one small balcony to dry laundry. The floors are divided up into two separate apartments front room and back room , each of 25 m2 in size. A family of 5 or 7 people lived here in tiny, humid and dark rooms. De Pijp was not as poor as the Jordaan District though. The people who lived here owned small businesses, were students or worked for the government, like police men, teacher or administrative.
Still, the area, then known as YY, was ridiculed in the newspapers as a place you had to get out of as quickly as possible. Some buildings had started to collapse shortly after they were finished. Beer houses and cheap hostels organised all sorts of clandestine entertainment. The Pijp was soon known for its prostitutes. Along the Sarphatipark there were many brothels.
Here, whores rented rooms for their customers for a short time. You can still find the remnants of this history along the Ruysdaelkade, where up to this day, prostitutes offer their services behind red lit windows. This was also the time and place a new literary movement started, called the Eightiers Tachtigers.
Many immigrants looking for a better life settled in De Pijp. First, the Jewish families. Later, immigrant workers from Turkey and Morocco often on invitation by the Dutch government came and settled here, giving De Pijp its multi cultural face. Best known example is the monumental building De Dageraad.
De Dageraad is a complex of several building created made by Dutch architects Michel de Klerk en Piet Kramer on orders of the socialist housing corporation De Dageraad. The curls, swirls and waves in the buildings, the strange towers and fantastic plastic and exorbitant decoration make the buildings playful and human. The architects believed in the socialist principles of their clients.
The aesthetically responsible housing would contribute to the uplifting of the working class. Inside, the houses had 3 or 4 rooms, a huge improvement. But the houses were not very functional. Aesthetics played a more important role than functionality. Excursions in the area are organised by Museum Het Schip.
One of the most famous novel in Dutch literature takes part in this neighourhood: De Avonden. Writer Gerard Reve lived on number of Jozef Israelskade, corner with Diamantstraat, with his parents. Here he wrote his famous book in The Diamond neighbourhood in The New Pijp is for Dutch people recognizable for its names of precious stones: The whole area is nice for a walk around because there are so many remarkable buildings and monuments.
The monumental building of Diamond cutter Asscher is worth a look. The factory dates back to The Asscher factory made world news in , when the British King Edward VII ordered the diamond cutter Abraham Asscher to polish the Cullinan, the biggest and most famous diamond in the world. In the best years, there were people working in this factory, most of whom live in the Diamond Neighbourhood.
Abraham Asscher was not religious, but felt very connected to the Jewish community and fulfilled many public functions in Jewish organisations. Asscher returned from concentration camp Bergen-Belsen after the war, mentally destroyed and cut all ties with the Jewish community. In the centre of the Diamond Neighbourhood stands the Bathhouse. Originally, this was the local bath house, a place where people came to get a bath before houses were equipped with a shower.
L van Gendt. They were built in the s as model houses for workers in the then agricultural area. This area is now a national monument. Typical for the theosophical movement are the many geometrical figures like circles and triangles. Unfortunately, Krishnamurti, seen as the reincarnation of Christ, left the movement shortly after the building was finished, thereby creating a split in its followers and a descent in its numbers.
There are many eateries and fine restaurants, wine bars, cocktail bars, but also small boutiques for vintage, designer and second hand. De Pijp today can hardly be called a poor district. On the contrary, De Pijp is a hotspot in Amsterdam. De Pijp is now a very central location, making it attractive to live. After the artists, students and young entrepreneurs, finally families moved in.
They have changed De Pijp into a popular, busy and trendy neighbourhood with lots of restaurants and bars. But the prices of housing have also boomed as a consequence and some say De Pijp has been yuppified too much. When Starbucks arrived, people protested and realized the small boutiques by local owners might become a thing of the past when big companies will make the rental prices soar.
The Heineken Brewery heads De Pijp at its entrance and marks the neighbourhood with its impressive industrial building. Since , no beer is brewed inside the Heineken Brewery in Amsterdam. Heineken beer is brewed outside of Amsterdam, in Zoeterwoude. But Heineken Beer is definitely from Amsterdam. It was the year old Gerard Heineken who bought an old Amsterdam beer brewery in and made it into a very successful enterprise.
The Heineken Brewery in Amsterdam now sells itself as a tourist attraction, called Heineken Experience and promotes its own beer. The tour explains how beer is made. The Albert Cuyp Market has been around since and was the natural consequences of the expansion of the city. Around around Up to this day, many of the market men yell out their wares.
A third of the market people were Jewish, which gave it its characteristic feel. Almost nobody survived the second world war and this left its mark on the market after the war. The Albert Cuyp is well known everywhere in the Netherlands. And the biggest. The market is closed on Sunday. I wish I stumbled upon it before we went there. Thank you for all the time you dedicated to write this up.
We had a 4 days stay and somehow every day we found ourselves avoiding the center part of the city. We stayed in De Pijp, we liked the Jordaan very much and we also enjoyed walking in the Plantage area. I also wish I knew dutch so I could enjoy ALL the books in the Public Library — we found it to be an amazing place to spend your time in.
We had a good night there dancing to live music and made friends with the few people there. Thank you very much for your feedback. And thanks for helping me, I have made the necessary changes. Until I read this article, I had no idea where I had been but recognise a lot of the sights.
