The New Amsterdam Trail commemorates the legendary journey of Henry Hudson for the Dutch to New York 400 years ago. The unique character of New York, originally New Amsterdam, has been shaped by the legacy of the multiethnic, entrepreneurial and tolerant culture of 17th century Amsterdam. The trail covers sites from as far south as the Battery to the northern boundary at Wall Street. The accompanying audio tour takes you on a journey through 17th century New Amsterdam and introduces you to its diverse and fascinating first residents.

NOTE; AFTER THE SUCCESSFUL 2009 CELEBRATION HENRY HUDSON 400 AMSTERDAM RENAMED ITSELF INTO HENRY HUDSON 500.
HENRY HUDSON 400 NY HAS BEEN DISSOLVED. 

Established in 2006 in Amsterdam and in New York, the Henry Hudson 400 Foundation was organized to celebrate the 400th anniversary of Henry Hudson. Besides celebrating the historic event, the Foundation also wants to explore future ties between these two great cities which are linked by their shared belief in the value of free, diverse, outward-reaching societies.
