Nowadays Ruigoord is inhabited by artists and "masters in the art of living", situated in the Amsterdam western harbour area. But Ruigoord ('t Ruyghe Oort) used to be an island, untill the digging of the North Sea Canal (1865-1876). It took a lot of protest, resistance, procedures and willpower to prevent the total demolition of this artistic free state.

View on the Noorder IJ lake and "Zijkanaal H", with houseboats.
Noorder IJ lake used to be a polder, but sand was extracted to create the highway A10. Recently Amsterdam started to dump soil here to reduce the depth (20 m.) of the lake.
"Zijkanaal H" marks the border between Amsterdam and Zaanstad.
