This plan probably accompanied the town's request to the Duke of York (later King James II) to agree to be its patron. It is an English copy of a map made for the Dutch authorities by Jacques Cortelyou before the town's surrender, and hence the last plan to use the name 'New Amsterdam'. English ships can be seen in the harbour. The wall, that was to give its name to Wall Street, and the battery, now Battery Park, can also be identified.
