Description:

What was New York when the Europeans arrived? Who came? What was here and what did they do with it?

Manhattan became a base of operations because of a combination of features found nowhere else: a vast harbor, an ice-free port, hills and valleys offering both protection from enemies and access to the interior.... In the 1660's a man wrote back to Europe, "It is as though God intends the trade of the world to locate here," and in the 1780's, when New York was home to a mere 25,000, George Washington said it was destined to become the great city of the world.

Remnants of these hills, streams and forests suggest the influence of pristine Manhattan on the city, the nation and the world.

And what of the founders? The Dutch left the area 350 years ago but their imprint remains an active influence, their worldview an indelible part of the city. Dutch use of the resources that made New York's rise a certainty affects and even determines our actions to the present day.

Thisis a private event. To schedule one of your own, be in touch at (862) 226-1244 or info@newyorkdynamic.com.
