Other cities worth going that are real closeby are Haarlem and Utrecht, going there by train from central station takes 15 and 30 minutes respectivly.If you take your fries real seriously, these are the best locations in Amsterdam and the other two cities i just mentioned.
I stayed outside the city centre when I was there, at the Bilderberg (don’t ask).
I learned Eliassen or two.
Its not a big deal in New York, but it is in places like New Orleans, which are both vacation destinations and home to rent-vulnerable populations, including the artists and locals than MAKE the city so unique.
AirBnB is huge here in SF. There are lots of places where the owners live in the home and rent out rooms for tourists. We have the same problem as NYC with rent control, plus we have much limited rental stock.
The consequences of an unregulated environment are, well, an unregulated environment. These new startups are cute but they’re subject to economic physics. Ethics are squishy and subject to interpretation. Economic behavior is more certain.
But only a little, says Thompson. He points to a FiveThirtyEight piece comparing the number of Airbnbs to the total number of rental apartments. For example, as of 2016, Airbnb rents out just 2,500 of New York City’s 2.2 million apartments.
Having been an AirBnb guest and a homeowner, it’s interesting to have perspectives on both experiences. As a homeowner, I would say never again. I was going to be abroad for six months and had a long-term rental commitment fall through last minute so that left AirBnB as a possible solution to pay the mortgage while…
If the weather is even bearable, take one of the open boat tours. You’ll see more of the city and architecture than you will walking.
I would agree, if you live in any kind of destination location then Airbnb has a significant influence on rent prices. For example I was recently in Driggs Idaho, a small town in the Tetons next to Grand Targhee resort. I was able to rent a one bedroom in-law apartment with a kitchenette (no stove) for $130 a night on…

The original premise (or, at least, selling point) of AirBnB was that you could stay in interesting places, with the locals. Absolutely not what it has become, i.e. staying in a wannabe hotel suite in a residential neighborhood for less $ than a hotel costs. I use AirBnB when traveling if there aren’t hostels…
So what do you do when someone has built a vacation type house for themselves and rent that out through one of these services? We’ve used those types of places a couple of times and they’ve worked really well. They keep the place for their own getaways when they want to use them or let family/friends use them and rent…
I always pick an Airbnb where the person lives there. I think that’s part of the appeal of an Airbnb, you can meet new people and get advice from a local.
Plus if the AirBnB is an actual home, you’re less likely to find partway through your trip that your missing some random thing you were expecting to have access to, like a strainer, or a bottle opener, and there are less likely to be issues that only happen when no one is ever in the apartment, like arriving to find…
Oh, and I agree with others who recommend avoiding the well-known coffee shops. There is a really good dispensary designed to look like a super hip pharmacy on Utrechtsestraat (I think there are two other locations as well) called Boerenjongens (farmer boys). The people who work there are fun and helpful. On Halloween…
Here’s what I’ve learned from my 2 visits:
Lived there 12 years.... Important points: (in no particular order)
What you’re looking at is the first direct observation of an atom’s electron orbital — an atom's actual wave function! To capture the image, researchers utilized a new quantum microscope — an incredible new device that literally allows scientists to gaze into the quantum realm.
