The New Amsterdam History Center is developing with the Center for Brooklyn History a program entitled The Early Dutch in Brooklyn. It will focus on the New Netherland years, the history of Dutch settlement in the area between the Narrows and Coney Island in Brooklyn, on certain tensions that arose between the Dutch and English, and will update the story of Anthony van Salée, the first New Netherland resident of Muslim background, and his feisty wife Grietje. Our speakers will be Professor Alan Mikhail of Yale University, and Professor Eric Platt of St. Francis College in Brooklyn. This in-person event (Covid permitting), scheduled for November 9, 2021, has the enthusiastic support of the Center for Brooklyn History and will take place at the Brooklyn Public Library.
