The Jordaan was a typical working-class neighborhood, home to many craftsmen and small businesses. The district became part of Amsterdam’s fortifications during the Third Expansion in the first half of the 17th century. The urban layout of the neighborhood follows the original plot with reclamation ditches from the polder landscape that was created around 1100. For the construction of the Prinsengracht, Keizersgracht, and Herengracht, that polder landscape was redesigned in a completely new pattern in a semicircle around the old city center. As a result, the streets and canals of the Jordaan are almost all oriented diagonally in relation to the Prinsengracht and do not connect well to the adjacent streets and bridges of the prosperous canal belt. The poor connection also meant that at the ends of the streets and canals, houses had to be built with sharp or obtuse angles. The beginning of the original, diagonal peat plot can still be found in the streets and alleys directly adjacent to the reclamation axis: the Nieuwendijk and the Kalverstraat, which together formed the river dike along the Amstel.
In the first half of the 19th century, Amsterdam experienced great poverty, and decay set in. Many houses were vacant and demolished. When the population began to increase again in the second half of the 19th century, there was a shortage of affordable housing for the poor. The Jordaan became overcrowded and impoverished. Large families lived in separately rented ‘living chambers’ and in cellars where groundwater welled up. At the end of the 19th century, many buildings, mostly with two floors, were demolished.
Today, the Jordaan is one of the most sought-after and beautiful old neighborhoods in the city. Buildings have been renovated, and the area is vibrant due to the many small shops and high-quality restaurants
