The Zeedijk (translated: "Sea dike") is the heart of Chinatown, the Chinese neighbourhood of Amsterdam.

It was at the Zeedijk where jazz musician Chet Baker died in 1988.

Once per year, in August, the "Hartjesdagen" take place on the Zeedijk featuring a parade of costume wearing participants. Rically an area riddled with crime and drug addicts, the area went through a revitalization and is now a hub for Chinatown where locals come to eat at Vietnamese, Thai and Chinese restaurants.(Wikipedia)
