User Reviews

Again a clarification. The newsletter is entirely the work of the Independent Living residents (but management pays the bill). I like everything about The Amsterdam at Harborside, but one of the top features is not listed as a choice for best. I am referring to our fellow residents -they are a great bunch.

The Amsterdam at Harborside is a great place to live. My wife and I have been have been here for over 2 years and we both keep very busy. The residents are pleasant and the staff is very helpful. It is a CCRC which means that health facilities are attached and are for our use at no extra cost if we ever need it. I had reason to use it last year, and I found the service to be excellent.

Response: This is actually an addition to my original review. If you would like to have a copy of our newsletter, write to me at ed2es at (but use the @ sign instead of the word). I'm the staff photographer, and we are very proud of our publication.
