Dutch Days - Mevrouw's Manhattan
A Walking Tour
About 1625, the Dutch founded the tiny settlement of New Amsterdam where my novel The Mevrouw Who Saved Manhattan takes place. Mevrouw Jackie Lambert's tavern looked out on the bay from Pearl Street, which ran along the island's original shoreline. This tour guides you through lower Manhattan, where Mevrouw's world is still written in the streetscape. Along the way, you will meet some of the crazy characters who made New Amsterdam such a bawdy place.
Start at #1, the U.S Customshouse opposite Bowling Green at the end of Broadway. Follow the numbers or just wander around.
