NY Adventure Club: New Amsterdam, the Birthplace of New York
Join New York Adventure Club as we discover the life of pirates and prostitutes living in the scrappy Dutch colony of New Amsterdam, long before New York was New York.
Step into the wooden shoes of the original settlers and see what life was like being an employee rather than a colonist. Based on exciting new research taking place over the last 35 years, Jonathan Anderson will show you a brand new side of this brave new world that you’ve never heard of before.
From Native American raids, to the origin of the cookie, to everyone’s least favorite peg-legged governor, you’ll see it all.
After the tour, we'll finish at a local eatery for some food and drinks!
