Discussion: History and Commerce in the Old and New Netherlands

In the past, this discussion on the “History and Commerce in the Old and New Netherlands” led by Jack Eichenbaum took place in January 2017. Now after a year and half, Jack has some new insights to share after ruminating on the subject and the “geo-synchronous” parallels it provides.

On September 30th, from 2:30PM thru 4:30PM in the Queens Historical Society, the talk will be held again. There will be a small admission charge to cover light refreshments, but anyone representing Dutch or Belgian commerical or diplomatic interests are invited freely so long as they inform Jack Eichenbuam in advance. Inform him by calling 718-961-8406 and feel free to communicate any opinions or information you can impart on the subject.

Jack Eichenbaum was appointed Queens Borough Historian eight years ago, and one of the priorities he has set out to do is establish local awareness of how Nederlanders influenced the growth, singularity and success of NYC compared to its English colonial counterparts.
