When I think of New York I think of it in touristy sections like China Town, Little Italy, etc., is there an area where there are a lot of Dutch?

Robert

Yes, the Dutch reside on those subway trains that don’t stop anywhere. They just go round and round and round.

Honestly, nope, there is no Dutch town…they have assimilated very well over the last four hundred years. Most of the neighborhoods you’re thinking of sprang up as different immigrant groups poured into the city, but there was no major emigration from Holland in the twentieth century.

There was a time in the 80s when everyone in New York wore clogs but you are much too young to remember that.
