As our next photowalk, we thought we'd take you to Amsterdam Zuidoost; The Bijlmer (or Bijlmermeer).
It will take place on Sunday, August 27th at 13:00 hours.
The Bijlmermeer neighborhood, which today houses almost 100,000 people of over 150 nationalities, was designed as a single project. The original neighborhood was designed as a series of nearly identical high-rise buildings laid out in a hexagonal grid. After El Al Flight 1862 crashed into two Bijlmermeer buildings in 1992, an incident known as the Bijlmerramp (Dutch for "Bijlmer Disaster"), it was decided that the neighborhood needed some further change. In recent years, many of the high rise buildings have been renovated or torn down. More expensive low-rise housing has been built to attract more middle- and upper-income residents.
The route starts at metro station Kraaiennest (M53), and will finishes at metro station Bullewijk (M50 & M54).
To reach station Kraaiennest, take metro M53 (second last stop). You can skip from M50 or M54 to M53 on station Van der Madeweg.
Let's have a great walk!
