Mapping Early New York: A Demonstration
Join NAHC Trustee Toya Dubin for an in-depth exploration of New Amsterdam in the 17th Century. Meet Native American Chief Wampage II, African American Manuel de Gerrit de Reus, Jewish resident Asser Levy, Anthony Salée, aka, « The Turk », and Catalina Trico women's advocate. Find out where they worked and lived, who they married and what they drank. Toya will introduce you to this diverse population who spoke 18 languages and laid the foundation for our New York City. Sliding time maps and a walk down Stone Street will capture your imagination.
