"The long-neglected New East is a glowing example of 21st-century urban planning done right.
One highlight includes a massive, rounded wrought-iron gate designed by Antwerp artist Narcisse Tordoir that's considered a triumph of public art. The gate scales the entire height of an eight-story building that resembles an Italian opera house in the island's Barcelona Square..."
...The neighbourhood has a creative and innovative atmosphere. Many small businesses, mainly in the arts, have settled here. There are many art & design shops and the neighbourhood has a fair amount of restaurants, cafes and clubs. Some of them are among Amsterdam's most trendy; others are among the most original in town.
