At the end of Stadhuisplein Mr Monkey studied Mari Andriessen's war memorial, Sterker door strijd (Stronger through struggle), which commemerates Rottadammers who died during WW2. Across the road he admired the town hall, a 17th century building, restored in 1823. He turned right, scurried along Coolsingel and crossed the street by descending into the Beurtraverse, an underground shopping mall nicknamed the koopgoot or shopping gutter.
