It is hard to believe such a modern, huge city like New York began as a collection of wooden, thatched roofed buildings. amazing piece of art you have created here.

This is magnificent. A view of the city of Nieuw-Amsterdam (New Amsterdam) which was owned and built up by the Dutch from 1624-1664. Then it was "conquered" by five English warships and the city was renamed New York City after James, Duke Of York (brother of King Charles II and future King James II.) With the exception of a year-long stint in 1673-1674 when the Dutch reclaimed it and named it "New Orange" it has been New York City ever since.

As always, another year, another incredibly painting! Did I mention that I look for your new paintings every year? True story. Yours is the art that makes the holiday more than just about costumes and candy -- you make Halloween scary again, and I love it.

A beautiful piece of work. Wouldn't it have been interesting to see what would have happened if the Dutch had retained their hold on the New World.

This is an awesome piece of art, my favorite piece I've seen in a very long time. A beautiful blend of agriculture, 17th century architecture, and is all tied together with the naval vessels in the background. Great job.

I love the way the sky reflects on the buildings. The scarecrow adds to the eeriness.
Btw, does anybody now the name of the font that was used to write "New Amsterdam"?
