khaleeq says:
"The Central rail station is currently undergoing a mammoth renovation and improvement project which will dramatically modernize this vitally important transportation hub. The work being done is especially challenging for several reasons: because the station was constructed on infill land; is a valuable historic landmark in its own right; and because it is imperative to keep the station open and operating during the whole restoration process. I think I read somewhere that the project will not be completed until 2012. In the meantime, the Central Station can seem like a harried, cluttered place - and one that is hard to get to! But the exterior is certainly a monument to a certain period of Dutch pride and glory. This neo-Renaissance, red-brick "Dutch gothic" style was the rage in the late 1800s, and can be seen in many places across Amsterdam. The architect for the station was a 19th century genius, PJH Cuypers (1827-1921) - who also designed the Riiksmuseum in a similar style on the other side of town"

"Almost same name and look as the Central Station in NY. But they should change that timetable for an electronic one :D"
 
Jessica Simpson says:
"I always think there's nothing quite like arriving in Amsterdam and walking out of Centraal Station… every time is like the first time."
