The origin of New York, one of the most cosmopolitan cities in the United States today, reaches back over 350 years ago. Before New York was New York, it was the Dutch colony of New Amsterdam, founded in 1624. Although New Amsterdam lasted only forty years before it was taken over by the English, the Dutch presence in America was to influence culture in the Northeast for centuries to come. Among the Dutch legacy handed down to the present day is the story of New Amsterdam's mostwell-known leader, Petrus, or Peter Stuyvesant.
