A Dazzling 400th Birthday for the Big Apple

Exactly 400 years ago Henry Hudson left the Dutch shores and set sail for America, where he founded New Amsterdam, the city that became New York. To celebrate this anniversary, the Netherlands and the City of New York organize a series of events that run throughout 2009 and half way into 2010 both in Amsterdam and in New York.

Let’s see what’s in the dazzling program of events for New York’s 400th birthday.
