There isn't one, that I can tell -- at least not there. For starters, there's really not only one "Red Light District" in Amsterdam. Sure, there's a big area in the middle of town marked on pretty much every map, but just around the corner from our beautiful apartment in our beautiful residential neighbourhood was a street of "windows".

They are referred to as "windows" because they always consist of a door with a full length window in which the ladies (and they're usually ladies; more on this later) sit or stand and "advertise their wares". The rules are simple:
- No taking pictures of the windows or the contents;
- The occupants are allowed to do whatever they want to attract your attention, but...
- They can't open the door unless you ask them to.
