Knowledgeable, enthusiastic, and a master storyteller, Sabry gives a fascinating account of the role of the Dutch in the early history of New York City.

Sabry’s lectures always are delivered with passion, lots of slides and are a definitive learning experience! Sabry, an Amsterdam native, travels over to the US side of the pond to trace the Dutch roots of Wall Street and Manhattan. He went over the founding of Manhattan and how it developed with lots of slides showing where these places are. Wow - Harlem was named after Haarlem (Netherlands) and the Bronx was named after a Dutchman! Great presentation and a learning experience!
I didn't know how many roots of the American idea came out of the soil the Dutch laid in New Amsterdam. Fascinating and provocative - and highly recommended.
I thoroughly enjoyed this conversation! It gave wonderful background on the roots and history of New Amsterdam and was presented in a very entertaining manner!
