Prostitution is really a big it&rsquo and business;s the oldest business in Amsterdam. 18 million visitors visited the Amsterdam red-light district and had a peak in the windows where prostitutes compete for customers.
The mayor put 4 options up for grabs referring to the necessity of local residents complaining about increasing crime in your community.
The first would be to literally draw curtains on the window booths so people cannot start to see the sex workers from the road.
The second item would be to move some window booths to the areas of the populous city, as the more radical option three would be to close down and move every one of them.
