New Amsterdam?

There were several moments in New York City that made me wonder - had I been transported from New Amsterdam to old Amsterdam? Narrow, crooked streets were lined with narrow brick buildings, flower boxes bloomed from windows, and practical city bicycles were chained to every stationary object.

A stylish, mature woman in a camel blazer rode past, accompanied by the rhythmic creak of various worn bicycle parts.

Some blocks further on, a bicycle shop - the famous Adeline Adeline - offered Dutch-style city bikes from Batavus, Workcycles, Pashley, and Abici.
