NEW YORK: Evolution from New Amsterdam to Present

Howdy folks,

I've been researching New York's history and their municipal archives, along with this forum, have been a veritable treasure trove of imagery. I've used quite a few of them in a series of blog posts detailing New York's colorful history. So far we are up to the 1920s but there are hundreds more pictures we are posting every week.

Just wanted to post the links here as my way of saying thank you to the forum. Hope this is a good place for me to post this, and that you enjoy these photos as much as I do.

Thanks for the kind words folks. Had to share it because I know what a passion there is here for both architecture and history. Plus it was a few threads on this forum that sort of inspired the whole thing

Very beautiful pictures.

The history of New York is very interesting. I have a book that I just love, "New York an Illustrated History" By Ric Burns and James Sanders made from a 12-hour PBS documentary.

It has tons of very beautiful pictures along with enjoyable texts.

I can only imagine how great it would've been if New York was still New Amsterdam.

Luckily there are so many things in New York that link back to the Dutch

@Robert, You should check out that post every couple of weeks, I am constantly finding new stuff to add. In fact if anyone here thinks I missed something put a brother on

@CCs77, thanks for the suggestion, I will definitely check it out!

@xlchris, I often wondered the same, but still prefer the sound of English to Dutch

Makes me wonder how New York would have been different if it was still New Amsterdam. Canals? Different grid?
