We were wandering around Amsterdam, trying to find the Red Light district. Let me tell you, we sure knew when we found it! There were rows and rows of windows with red lights above them and women in lingerie sitting in them. It almost made you feel embarassed for looking but they would look you right in the eye. Sort of a weird feeling. Beside them, in their cubes, were beds. They would close their curtains when they were...conducting their business. Also in the area are a lot of "coffee shops", shops selling pipes and things like that. A warning to note is that this area is not all that safe at night. The police patrol it in the day but not after midnight. I would go in the day and avoid it after dark.
