    Knickerbocker: The Myth Behind New York

    Join author Elizabeth L. Bradley as she reveals the myths associated with New York City’s Dutch heritage created by Washington Irving with the character Diedrick Knickerbocker. According to Irving’s partisan narrator, everything good and distinctive, proud and powerful, about New York City—from doughnuts to the twisting streets of lower Manhattan—could be traced back to New Amsterdam. In her new book, Knickerbocker: The Myth Behind New York (Rutgers, 2009), Bradley explores the creation, evolution, and prevalence of Irving’s imaginary historian in New York literature, history, art, and advertising from the early 19th century to the present day. Presented in conjunction with the exhibition Amsterdam/New Amsterdam: The Worlds of Henry Hudson.
