Additional Details

"[This map] arguably represents the apogee of Dutch knowledge of the region, many toponyms appearing for the first time... Although the region is named both New Netherlands and New York the city itself is unnamed. Nearby are a great number of placenames including some recognisable ones such as Konynen Eyl., Breukelen and further east on Long Island Heemstede, Ooster Bay and Oost Hampton." -- Burden 587, state 4.
