My apartment is not very big, but bright and sunny and I love it!
It's just outside the center of Amsterdam, so, less crowded.
My street is rather wide. I rather like this wideness, because of the privacy. The neighborhood is mostly apartments, but there are 3 supermarkets and other "normal" shops you need for daily life. There are the 3 big museums, the Vondelpark, the Municipal theater and the worldfamous Concerthall (Concertgebouw), all at walking distance.

My neighborhood is very pleasant, mostly apartments, but also shops, small restaurants, excellent public transport, and the 3 big museums are within walking distance,
To get to my apartment from the airport take bus 397 which takes you in 30 minutes to Leidseplein which is 10 minutes walking from my place.
Bus 397 departs every 15 minutes.
