Why Amsterdam-Noord, The Netherlands

Many of you may have been to Amsterdam, but have you ever been to Amsterdam-Noord (Amsterdam North)? Basically, instead of heading towards the city of Amsterdam when you get off the train at Centraal Station, turn the other way, exit through the back of the station and get on a free ferry to the other side of the IJ River; its a brave new world waiting just for you.

The area is accessible by tunnels, a road and ferries. Ever ventured that way?
