〉 Amsterdam East
City district Amsterdam Oost, Amsterdam's eastern part of the city with 125,000 inhabitants, can be divided in the neighborhoods: IJburg, Indische Buurt, Oostelijk Havengebied ('Eastern Docklands'), Oud-Oost ('Old East'), Watergraafsmeer, and Zeeburg.
Tourist attractions of Oost include the beautiful Oosterpark (from 1891), the majestic building of Tropenmuseum, daily street market Dappermarkt (from 1910), windmill and brewery Brouwerij 't IJ, Muziekgebouw aan 't IJ and Bimhuis. The latter two nightlife venues are relatively close to the city centre.
Oud-Oost consists of ethnically mixed working-class neighbourhoods that originate from the late 19th century. They have a large immigrant population, as can be seen in the streets.
The Dappermarkt reflects the ethnic make-up of the area with products for sale for Amsterdam inhabitants of Dutch Antillean, Moroccan, Surinamese or Turkish origin.
Completed in 1994 the Rembrandt Tower, with 135 metres the tallest skyscraper of Amsterdam, is situated close to the Amsterdam Amstel railway station in an emerging business district with the head office of Philips.
IJburg, the newest neighborhood of Amsterdam, is a new middle-class neighbourhood on artificial islands reclaimed from the IJ in the 2000s.
