The East River of Manhattan, c. 1662 by Len Tantillo
Signed and numbered print depicts a 17th century view of the tip of Manhattan, looking to the southwest. If all those who cross the Brooklyn Bridge into Manhattan could be transported back, for an instant, to the 17th century, they would be taking in the sight of a busy Dutch colonial city at the height of its success. While the skyline of the lower East Side has been forever transformed, it is important to remember the significance of New York City’s storied Dutch origins. The East River was then the busiest harbor in North America, with vessels of every size and description plying its waters. The international importance of New York Harbor originated four centuries ago in an age when goods were transported by wind and sail.
