Architectural historian Barry Lewis takes us on a grand tour of early New York, illuminating how Henry Hudson’s discovery of the Hudson River and the Dutch colony that sprang up around it transformed into the city of New York over the course of 200 years.

Barry Lewis, an architectural historian who teaches at Cooper Union Forum, is the former co-host of a popular walking tour series on PBS.
