Event Details

The history of New York City tells a complex story of competing identities and ambitions
among the Indigenous tribes that long populated the area and European powers who sought
to colonize the new world.  Historian and author Russell Shorto will talk about how the
Dutch created the colony of New Netherland, why the English wanted it, and how the
clash between these two cultures and the local inhabitants resulted in the unique entity that
became New York.  Mr. Shorto is the director of the New Amsterdam Project at the
New York Historical Society and a senior scholar at the New Netherland Institute.
