One third of the houses along the canals (grachtenhuizen) were built before 1850. Since the houses (along the canals) were built on marshland, Dutch houses were built with many big windows to help reduce weight. All if not most of the houses have a furniture hook near the top. If they staircases and doors are too narrow, the residents of the house will use the hook as a pulley to bring their furniture in through the window.
The 17th and 18th century houses, once owned by wealthy merchants and prominent citizens are now banks and financial institutes.
Near Central Station floats one of the largest restaurant in Amsterdam -The Sea Palace Restaurant .It was found in 1984 and has the seating capacity of 700..
