The history of the Dutch within present-day New York City has long been overshadowed by the British in our popular historical narrative. However, Dutch influences and contributions remain throughout the physical and cultural landscape. Within Brooklyn and Queens, historical archaeology has looked at material culture, architecture, and documentary history to better understand Dutch-American lifeways and contributions to the history of New York City. Studies of properties such as the Hendrick I. Lott House and Gerritsen’s Mill provide insight into the development of the City and our collective history.
