Henry Hudson 400 New York and Amsterdam were created in 2006 to commemorate the 400th anniversary of Henry Hudson’s legendary voyage for the Dutch to the Hudson River and New York. The unique character of New York City, originally New Amsterdam, has been shaped by the legacy of the multiethnic and tolerant culture of 17th century Amsterdam. Besides celebrating the historic event with a series of special events in 2009, Henry Hudson 400 will promote future ties between these two great cities which are linked by their shared belief in the value of free, diverse, and entrepreneurial societies.
