One of the earliest obtainable views of Manhattan. The community as it was in 1651. A small village of a few wooden buildings including the town's fort, warehouses, and Governor's residence. People are depicted and an array of boats are pictured both afloat in the harbor and drawn upon the shore. Near the shore, a crowd has gathered. Extracted from John Ogilby's America.
