    Not to miss: NY400 week (September 8-13)



    In 1609, a Dutch ship called the Half Moon arrived to the shores of what is now New York City with Captain Henry Hudson at the helm. Four hundred years later, NY400 celebrates the deep-rooted connection between the Netherlands and New York City, including the common values of freedom, entrepreneurship and tolerance. The NY400 celebrations reach their highlight in September, and culminate in a series of great events that will be attended by their Royal Highnesses the Prince of Orange and Princess Máxima of the Netherlands.



    Visit the New York edition of the Dutch Oerol and Parade, the ‘New Island Festival’ on Governors Island, get a taste of Dutch foods at the New Amsterdam Village on Bowling Green, admire Vermeer’s famous painting ‘The Milkmaid’ at the Metropolitan Museum, celebrate Dutch design, fashion and architecture with Pioneers of Change on Governors Island and ride on of the bright orange NY400 bikes for free! A symbolic gift representing our united spirit and common future, the ‘New Amsterdam Plein and Pavilion’ designed by renowned Dutch architect Ben van Berkel, will be opened at Battery Park on September 9.
