NewYorkers are called Yankees. Because in New Amsterdam there were a lot of Dutch named Jan or Kees. When the English came they called the Dutch residents JanKees which lead to Yankees. Brooklyn derived from the Dutch Breukelen. And Harlem from Haarlem.
Canadian Vancouver has a Dutch connection as well, Van Coevorden. Coevorden is also a Dutch town.

I loved Amsterdam!! My boyfriend got so upset walking past the red light district he didn’t see any girls 😂 don’t ask me how he missed them? There were so many of them 🙈😂 I loved the ice bar !! Awesome to take pictures in 💃🏻 since it is quite unique - well for me it was 🌸
Visit also the Albert Cuypmarkt (market), De Pijp / The Pipe (neighbourhood), Amsterdamse Bos (Amsterdam Forest), a canal cruise, Artis Zoo, Anne Frank house, eat 'stroopwafels' and 'poffertjes'(little pancakes) and have fun :)
I went to a restaurant called Moeder (which means Mother) and it serves traditional Dutch food that your mother would make. I am Dutch and it was like having dinner at my Oma's house again! Highly recommend
I loved Amsterdam! It is a beautiful city! I really loved visiting the Anne Frank Huis museum as well 😊 though it was very crowded and basically we spent the whole time in a line that shuffled room to room. It was really fascinating.
THEY DO SELL COFFEE IN COFFEESHOPS!!! why else would they call it coffee shops! almost every single staff in coffee shops have been able to make me coffee with a professional coffee machine! Lets call them Budrista!
To believe in The Creator (GOD)
is the default positions
ISLAM and Jesus and Mary
We muslims are in middle , between the Jews and Christians, when it comes to Jesus and Mary peace be upon them both. Jews speak ill of him and his mother and christians say he is GOD or the son of GOD or GOD him self or one in 3,
we muslims with the grace of GOD say ,He was the messiah and the messenger of GOD just like the other messengers ,Abraham,Moses,Noah ..David and rest of them .They all came with the same message, even though the rules and regulations changed but basic message never changed ,Adam being the first prophet and the father of humanity (who was bowed down to by the Angels,(created by light) As respect for Adam not as worship ,all of the Angels compiled to this order of Allah except iblees ,who said you created me from fire (he was a jinn) and created him(Adam) from clay(the jinn race were created from smoke less fire and were on earth before us and are still present ,iblees was,not a fallen angle, jinns are a creation of free will like us .hidden from human eyes and are able to transform in to humans and animals and also able to fly ,Allah will judge them just like us and their destination either physical paradise or physical hell fire after physical resurrection, ) and Muhammad peace be upon him being the last prophet and messenger. all of them called to the worship of One GOD , peace be upon them all.
ALLAH (jews and Christians in middle east have been calling GOD ,Allah(which is his original Name) for centuries ,even the present day bible in arabic says Allah as GOD'
Allah has no likeness to his creation,his names and attributes are all perfect , He is above his creation,above his throne (The Throne is bigger than the universe and more) in a way which befits him , He is alone ,
like it is said in the bible ,listen oh Israel the Lord is our GOD The Lord is alone .In the Quran Allah says
,,Say He is Allah the ONE, Allah the eternal,He does not beget and He is not begotten and there is no one like him . Quran chapter 112
The Prophets and Messengers before Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him,were send to a particular community of people ,Moses to his people,Noah to his people and Jesus to the children of Israel
Jesus said “I was sent only to the lost sheep of the house of Israel.”
but the last Prophet and Messenger Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him and all the Prophets)
Allah send him to all of the mankind until day of judgment
Say, [O Muhammad], "O mankind, indeed I am the Messenger of Allah to you all Quran chapter 7.158. Prophet Muhammad is also Prophesied in the bible
Well then, who are you?" they asked. "Are you Elijah?" "No," he replied. "Are you the Prophet we are expecting?" "No." Join 1,21
According to this the Jews were waiting for a Prophet who is not John the Baptist peace be upon him and John the Baptist is also confirming that there is a another Prophet which is not The Messiah , so read Isaiah 29-12
And when they give the book to one who cannot read, saying, “Read this,” he says, “I cannot read.”
This Prophecy is for no other than Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him. It has been narrated in
Sahih al-Bukhari 3—The angel came to him and asked him to read. The Prophet replied, "I do not know how to read." The Prophet added, "Then the angel caught me (forcefully) and pressed me so hard that I could not bear it any more. He then released me and again asked me to read and I replied, 'I do not know how to read.'" ...
Quran is the only word of GOD preserved in its original form, it has dozens of miracles ,including scientific and historical ,like the big bang , expansion of the universe, every living thing is created from water ,embryology in details ,black holes ,mountains as pegs ,different types of clouds ,water circle, Queen bee ,genders in plants ,Iron not from earth rather send down, ants speaking to each other , the preservation of the body of pharaoh as sign from Allah for the oppressors and much much more ,just type Islam and science and the above mentioned things in internet ,u tube and be surprised .May Allah guide the christians they can't prove the authenticity of the 4 gospels ,which were written 70-90 years after jesus ,mark and Luke never met Jesus , the title according to mathew was added in the second century and the gospel of John was written the last after 70 years of Jesus ,yet John suppose to be the beloved.
Don't forget in the council of Nicaea 325 years after Jesus ,the emperor and bishops rejected all those Gospels which mentioned That Jesus was the Messenger and the Messiah NOT the Son of GOD. Even authors of the revised standard version bible comprising of 50 scholars has declared that the word BEGOTTEN and trinity in John as
FABRICATION and not part of the bible.
Islam does not allow any intermediates between Allah and his creation. One is ordered to worship ALLAH directly seeking His help and forgiveness, All sins will be forgiven by Allah (GOD )with the exception of The sin association partners with Allah ,e.g. saying Jesus is GOD Or son of GOD ,in this case eternity in hell fire (I pray all those who read this,that Allah opens their hearts to Islam
As for Mary she is considers the woman of all times so much so that there is a whole chapter in the Quran in her name called soora muryam
GOD say in soora Aal-e-Imran َا3,42
And [mention] when the angels said, "O Mary, indeed Allah has chosen you and purified you and chosen you above the women of the worlds,
O Mary, be devoutly obedient to your Lord and prostrate and bow with those who bow [in prayer]."
(And mention] when the angels said, Mary, indeed Allah gives you good tidings of a word from Him, whose name will be the Messiah, Jesus, the son of Mary - distinguished in this world and the Hereafter and among those brought near [to Allah ].in 3:46ّ
He will speak to the people in the cradle and in maturity and will be of the righteous.in 3,47
She said, "My Lord, (Allah ,GOD)how will I have a child when no man has touched me?" [The angel] said, "Such is Allah ; He creates what He wills. When He decrees a matter, He only says to it, 'Be,' and it is.َّ
And in Quran ,chapter 3-59 GOD says
Indeed, the example of Jesus to Allah is like that of Adam. He created Him from dust; then He said to him, "Be," and he was.
Jesus Not crucified
And [for] their saying, "Indeed, we have killed the Messiah, Jesus, the son of Mary, the messenger of Allah ." And they did not kill him, nor did they crucify him; but [another] was made to resemble him to them. And indeed, those who differ over it are in doubt about it. They have no knowledge of it except the following of assumption. And they did not kill him, for certain.4,157
Jesus will declare his innocence in front of Allah (GOD) on the day of judgment Al-Ma'idah 5:116
And [beware the Day] when Allah will say, "O Jesus, Son of Mary, did you say to the people, 'Take me and my mother as deities besides Allah ?'" He will say, "Exalted are You! It was not for me to say that to which I have no right. If I had said it, You would have known it. You know what is within myself, and I do not know what is within Yourself. Indeed, it is You who is Knower of the unseen. Al-Ma'idah 5:117ٌ
I said not to them except what You commanded me - to worship Allah, my Lord and your Lord. And I was a witness over them as long as I was among them; but when You took me up, You were the Observer over them, and You are, over all things, Witness. Al-Ma'idah 5:118
,we muslims also believe in the second coming of Jesus peace be upon him
Jesus will return to kill the false messiah (dajal) and rule on earth as a just ruler and command the human beings to worship ALLAH alone ,just like what He did when He was on earth for the first time
I pray all of you out there ,who seek nearness to Allah (GOD), that He guides you to Islam and showers his mercy on you,
As Allah said to prophet Moses ,my mercy encompasses every thing (Quran chapter,7)Ameen pease
Visit the whole city, not Just the museum square. For example the academy i go to is literally across a botanical garden known as 'de Hortus' on the Hortusplantsoen. Also visit the jewish museum wich is like less than a 5 min. Walk away from that garden.
I was in the Netherlands early last year I definitely recommend exploring Nordvik it’s on the northern coast. Lovely beach town perfect for escaping the hustle and bustle of Amsterdam. I stayed at the flying pig hostel the employees and owner were incredibly welcoming.
It's funny how you guys call Amsterdam Noord the Brooklyn of New York, when Brooklyn originated in 'Breukelen', a place near Utrecht. Speaking of which, in 30 minutes (by train) you're in Utrecht. Utrecht is more chilled out then Amsterdam, people are chillin' in all the parks and everybody is just really nice there :)
And Alex if you ever come to the Netherlands again and you're really exited about Van Gogh; there's a bike lane near Eindhoven with a glow in the dark version of that painting, on the actual bike path. I hope the lights still glow! :) http://www.vangoghbrabant.com/nl/meer-van-gogh/fietspad
oh and for the BEST FRIES YOU HAVE EVER TASTED (really, they are actually proven to be the best of the Netherlands): Vlaams Friteshuis Vleminckx, located in a small alley next to the famous Kalverstraat! i recommend everyone to try their fries, they are a-ma-zing. and it's a great way to take a break from all the shopping in the Kalverstraat! there are always people standing in line, but they work quickly so you often don't have to wait longer than 5min. you do have to pay cash over there, so you have to have some cash on you (but only around two euros).
ps. i should get paid for all this advertising haha
tip: a nice, quite affordable shop/tiny cafe to get your cookies is stach; there are a couple of them around amsterdam. i believe they make all of their products theirselves. they also sell chips, salads, wraps etc so you can get lunch there too. and a nice small place to get the best burgers in town is burger fabriek (burger factory). there are two of them in Amsterdam, and a burger (with fries) is just around 10-15 euros. the restaurants are really small so you do kind of have to be lucky to find a free table, but the restaurant is really aesthetically pleasing and the burgers are delicious!! oh and you can tap your beer yourself at your table!
yesss surinamese food is THE BEST! i wasn't expecting to hear that from you. i'm really happy how you represented my country! you didn't just recommend the usual stuff (I Amsterdam sign etc etc) but you also put in things that aren't that often recommended (when they should!). you even put in things that i wouldn't have thought to mention haha
ps. yes it's really true, we do NOT like tourists who just chaoticly ride around in Amsterdam with their bikes! so please just inform yourself about the rules first :)
Hey guys! First of all, thanks for the great videos. I fell in love with Amsterdam (after 3 attempts to get there, over a number of years) and have been there 3 times over a 13-month period. I am NOT into the Red Light District, don't drink beer (or Jener) and am 100% NOT into smoking...but, I love the canals outside of the touristy areas. They are beautiful, quaint, quiet, spotted with interesting shops, galleries, cafés/restaurants...and very romantic. The architecture is great and I love seeing the small apartments tucked in the half-basements, the potted flowers adorning narrow and steep stairs, the variety of tiles greeting you in the entrance ways of many of the houses. My favorite areas are the Jordaan - funky shops mixed with a few hidden courtyards, fascinating little shops with one-of-a-kind items, laid-back eateries...and more. The other favorite part of town is the Oud-Zuid (old south): similar to the Jordaan in it's content of stores and cafés, but the architecture is truly beautiful, with ornate apartment houses, massive trees that rim the Vondel Park (which borders this exquisite city quarter) and the quiet of it's winding streets. And it's just a skip away from the Museumplein. If I could, I'd live in Amsterdam. As much as I dislike crowds (which Amsterdam has in spades, around the Centraal Station!), these two areas mentioned here are glorious respites from the noise and bustle. My next trip is planned for May 2018 - I'm psyched!!
Of all the cities I’ve been to, Boston, New York, Miami, Montreal, Seattle, Vancouver, Honolulu, I never felt safer than strolling through Amsterdam. My wife and I could even go to the RLD at night and simply enjoy the beauty of the magic of the architecture and lighted canal bridges.
Yeah... When cycling...
Don't get in our way...
It's a mode of transportation to most normal dutch people trying to get from A to B. You'll see business people in suits taking bikes because in cities it's usually just faster than a car ride would be.
Heck, the majority of trips taken in cities in the Netherlands, especially in Amsterdam, are done by bike over car actually. Especially if you don't count public transport, which is usaully pretty good in and of itself.
Also. If you can manage it and cost is an issue. Try not coming in the weekend when alot of Amsterdam is quite alot more expensive.
Oh and very important...
DONOT WALK ON THE BIKEPATHS!
Usually they'll be paved red. But this is not always true, so do make sure to keep an eye on it.
Because we will run you over if you're walking on the bikepath.
"You're not supposed to smoke in public"
Eh, wrong. It's not illegal to smoke marijuana in public. It's only forbidden in some small parts (like the touristic parts), but in 99% of all of Amsterdam you can just relax and smoke some weed ;)
