Nowhere is the quiet but determined entrepreneurial spirit of the Amsterdammers better on display than in borough North. The Northerners have turned the old shipyards, garages and warehouses into cinemas, restaurants and clubs — sometimes all in one. In the process, they’ve made the Gedempt Hamerkanaal the coolest little street in town, flourishing without losing its edge. Whether it’s a taqueria, coffee bar or upscale restaurant, there is something for everyone here.
