Jordaan might be my favorite part of Amsterdam and it's arguably one of the coolest neighborhoods in all of Europe! All of the best shops and eateries are along narrow side streets, making this an ideal place for cyclists. Check out my video of Jordaan!
I wish I had had an afternoon to talk leather and shoes with Nils. Regrettably I had to move on and shoot the next show, but I can't stop thinking that the busy craftsman you see from the street owns the shop and gives his own name to the brand. Can you imagine spotting Miuccia Prada through the window while she toils away in a little corner of Milan?
The secret code of Jordaan? The back streets, such great energy! From beautiful vintage shops to sprocket hair salons, this is what you'll want to see. I'd move here in a heartbeat!
