New York City's 350th Birthday Walk

$15 - tour only

$25 - tour and copy of Footprints in New York

In September 1664, Peter Stuyvesant handed over the Dutch colony of New Netherland to the English, who renamed it New York. A month later, the English authorities required all Dutch citizens to swear an oath of allegiance to King Charles II, kicking off a century of uneasy relations between the crown and New York's multicultural residents.

Join us for a walk through the streets of Lower Manhattan as we time travel back to the late-17th and early-18th centuries to walk in the footprints of these early New Yorkers, including the powerful Delanceys, Van Cortlandts, Stuyvesants, Morrises, and more.
