Usual shops, nothing out of the ordinary to see here Unless you like the layout of a semi sunken shoppingstreet :-) overall, the usual high-street shops but in an unusual layout. Handy for the centre of R'dam.

Yes, this is simply part of a normal street except there are no cars or bikes in the shopping area. Some stores can still refuse to allow your dog inside though.
