Have you ever wondered what New York was like before it was a city? The year 2009 marks the 400th anniversary of explorer Henry Hudson's voyage to New York State and the river that bears his name. As we celebrate the anniversary of the voyage, historian Barry Lewis takes us back in time to rediscover the first European settlers in New York â€' the Dutch. This documentary looks at the Dutch influence on New York and on the American colonies.
