Thank you very much for this interesting article on the role that the Dutch (and to a lesser extent the Belgians) have played in shaping what is New York today. You probably know the role played by David Pieterszen de Vries. I provide a short description of it and the ship he used, the Koning David, in a book I wrote about shipwrecks in Madagascar. Here is the link:http://www.strategicbookpublishing.com/ShipwrecksOfMadagascar.html. Please also note the very important role that New York (and Governor Benjamin Fletcher) played in the piracy in Madagascar.
