New Amsterdam Stories

A DIGITAL DIG TO LINK 17TH CENTURY RECORDS BETWEEN AMSTERDAM AND NEW YORK CITY

 
 

New Amsterdam Stories is a collaboration between the New York City Municipal Archives and the Stadsarchief Amsterdam. This pilot project sets in motion a unique shared cultural heritage partnership seeking to bring archival collections to wider audiences and to establish opportunities for greater research, knowledge-sharing, and storytelling.

This website serves as a portal for the NYC Municipal Archives, the City of Amsterdam Archives, and consulting scholars who will contribute to the intellectual content of the records by identifying inherent intersections about people, places, and events within each repository's collection. Commentary and perspectives from diverse audiences are invited via the project's blog. 

The New Amsterdam Stories project is made possible by grants from Dutch Culture, Dutch Culture USA, and the Dutch National Archives, as well as support from the New Netherland Institute.
