NJ PBS Specials | Episode | Show Me Where You Live: Amsterdam's floating Ijburg houses

covered by water: canals, lakes or rivers. Since the Middle Ages, the Dutch
have used their inventiveness to reclaim land from the sea by building so-called
"polders" on which 60% of Dutch people live. Some feat when you consider that
the Netherlands is the European nation with the densest population for its size.
