NYC marks 400th anniversary of Dutch arrival





Four hundred years after Henry Hudson sailed his ship Half Moon up a river that would one day bear his name, historians are marking his role in the evolution of a tiny Dutch trading post into a world capital called New York.

The activity includes exhibits by the Museum of the City of New York and the New-York Historical Society, a recreation of the Half Moon's voyage of discovery up the Hudson, and scores of events here and in the Netherlands.

In addition, the New-York Historical Society plans two exhibits, and the Dutch consulate in New York lists more than 50 events in both cities, ranging from "New York Nights" in Amsterdam to concerts, walking tours, and art and flower shows.
