The Little Street (Het Straatje) is a painting by the Dutch painter Johannes Vermeer, executed c. 1657–1658. It is housed in the Rijksmuseum of Amsterdam, and signed on the left below the window with the writing "I V MEER".[1][2] The exact location of the scene Vermeer painted is not known. However, a study argued that the Voldersgracht or the Nieuwe Langendijk[3] was the location painted. The Vermeer Centre Delft is now located there.
