My place is centered in Amsterdam-Noord close to the NDSM-dockyard. A trendy place to be! It’s a creative place full of nice restaurants and bars, without the massive tourism in the city centre.
From NDSM you can take the free ferry to to Central Station. And from central station you can take the the free ferry back. From there it's a 10 minute walk to my apartment. The bus station is just a few steps away from this place and it takes about 13 min to get to the Central Station :)
