An illustrated map displaying early settlements and boundaries of New Amsterdam – a fledgling town occupied by an increasing amount of Dutch settlers. Visible in this map are Fort Amsterdam, strategically located at the southern port of the island, along with the northern palisade – a security measure against invaders and the site of present-day Wall Street.
