New Year's Eve fireworks and transport

Hello... We may be able to be in Amsterdam for New Year's Eve and are wondering if it's worth it since we don't know the area very well and don't want to fuss over not knowing where we are or how to get where we want to be. Our hotel would be near the airport. So, our questions are... Where are some of the best places to be to watch the fireworks and how concerned should we be about safety? Also, will it be easy to return to the airport in the wee hours of the morning on New Year's Day? ...... Any info would be appreciated...... thnks............

The official page of the City of Amsterdam about NYE:
(Just use Google translator).

There is a big fire works display at the Nautical Museum that will be broadcasted live on National Televison (East of the Central Train Station).

There will be no public transportation within Amsterdam from 8PM till 1AM. Thereafter there will be nightbus transportation available. Trains to the airport will run each hour. Check with your hotel if they have a shuttle and if it's in service that night.

Fire work will be sold from December 29 and you can expect youngsters using it from that date (although officially it's only allowed to use it on December 31).
