Impressive building... the total lack of unity in style with the surroundings is almost funny..:-)

Mary, not far from this chuch there is the Victoria Hotel (directly opposite the Central Station). In this hotel there are embedded two tiny houses just like the red and darkgrey ones in the picture above. Late 19th century, when the hotel was planned, the owners of these houses refused to sell their houses to the company that was building the Victoria Hotel. So they just built the hotel "around" these two tiny houses! Perhaps I have a photo of this peculiar situation. If I find it I will post it.

enjoying the views of Amsterdam - it's so picturesque to see
the various parts of the city whether you have been there or,
in my case, not.

Only 1884? It look so much older than that. Spectacular architecture.

How did you take the shot? On a boat? I love the composition and POV.
