Henry Hudson and the Shaping of New York
Do you know how many maps the Hudson River was on prior to Hudson reaching the New World? Or that a matter of weeks kept New York from becoming a French colony in the beginning? Or, that if Hudson had been more successful in his early career, New York may have been an English colony from the start? Join us at Philipse Manor for a lecture on Hudson’s explorations and how they led to the New York that we know today. Saturday, September 12th, 1 p.m.
