Nieuwe Kerk - The Royal Church of Amsterdam
The Nieuwe Kerk (Dutch: [ˈniʋə ˈkɛrk], New Church) is a 15th-century church in Amsterdam, located on Dam Square, next to the Royal Palace.
The Nieuwe Kerk is no longer used for church services but is used as an exhibition space. It is also used for organ recitals. There is a café in one of the buildings attached to the church that has an entrance to the church (during opening hours). There is a museum store inside the entrance that sells postcards, books, and gifts having to do with the church and its exhibitions.

Looking at this area today on Google earth it seems that fairly sizable towns have been built on both sides of the border. In 1972 the area was almost empty. Now of course there is also a heavy traffic of goods and tourists going this way. Times have changed in 42 years.
