Geuzenveld, Slotermeer and Osdorp districts

The districts of Geuzenveld, Slotermeer and the similar Osdorp are west of the Bos en Lommer quarter. It is divided into ten parts, conveniently named Buurt 1, Buurt 2 etc.

The buildings here were constructed between 1920 and 1940, with some additional 1950s social housing. Although there are some nice two-storey houses, most of the neighbourhood consists of the grey blocks along windswept streets that have given Amsterdam west such a bad reputation over the years.

Tensions between immigrants and police have helped create a largely undeserved ghetto image for the neighbourhood. However this helps to keep the rents low: 3-room apartments range from about 325 to 450.
