This playground is name for Coenradt Ten Eyck (1617-1686), but unfortunately, historians have only been able to make a rough sketch of his life’s story. He was born in 1617 in Moers, Germany, to Wilhelm Ten Eyck (1590?-1645?) and Michel Puitzen (1592-1623?). He married Maria Boele (1622-?), in Amsterdam, Netherlands in June 1645. The marriage intention, dated May 12, 1645, indicates that he worked as a shoemaker’s helper. In approximately 1651, they immigrated to New Amsterdam.
