Amsterdam is a city located in New York, United States.
Most areas in Amsterdam are quiet, as the streets are peaceful - however noise can be problematic close to the railway line or New York State Thruway.
Single detached homes are the main housing type, representing around 45% of the dwellings in Amsterdam, whereas the remainder are mainly small apartment buildings and duplexes. This city has a selection of housing sizes, ranging from lofts to four or more bedrooms. About 60% of the population of this city own their home whereas renters make up the remainder. This city experienced its latest housing boom pre-1960, so most of the available properties are from this time period.
Reaching one of around 20 supermarkets by walking is practical for some, but not all, house buyers in Amsterdam. A small variety of restaurants and coffee shops is available as well. As far as education is concerned, there are only a few high schools and primary schools in Amsterdam and thus they can be a long walk away.
Driving is an excellent mode of transportation in Amsterdam. Many houses for sale are a reasonably short car ride from the closest highway, such as New York State Thruway, and parking is easy. However, traveling on foot is not very feasible for home buyers in this city as running common errands is impractical by walking.
