Its for a history paper and my book has no real details about it
what features are present in New Amsterdam that identify it as a Dutch colony and not as an English colony?
My daughter must be in your class... she couldn't find this answer either.
If someone is able to help here, we all would be very grateful.
On the topic of Dutch Manhatten I recommend Russell Shorto's Island at the Center of the World, which makes the case for the long influence of the Dutch on New York and the wider American culture.
