Remarks The fundamental value of toleration was the New Netherland (1614-1674) contribution to American liberty as planted first in 1624 onto the Western Hemisphere by the first settlers to Noten Eylant (now Governors Island). Tolerance and World Trade, covertly introduced to the North American Continent by Henry Hudson in 1609, formed the basis of cultural pluralism and forever made New York City the preferred entry point for immigrants.
