The colony of New Amsterdam was centered at the site which would eventually become Lower Manhattan.It extended from the lower tip of Manhattan to modern day Wall Street,where a 12-foot wooden stockade was built in 1653 to protect against Native American and British Raids.Slavery became integrally tied to New York's economy through the labor of slaves throughout the port, and the banks and shipping tied to the American South.
In 1639–1640, in an effort to bolster economic growth, the Dutch West India Company relinquished its monopoly over the fur trade, leading to growth in the production and trade of food, timber, tobacco, and slaves (particularly with the Dutch West Indies).
On August 24, 1673, during the Third Anglo-Dutch War, Dutch captain Anthony Colve seized the colony of New York from England at the behest of Cornelis Evertsen the Youngest and rechristened it "New Orange" after William III, the Prince of Orange.
Most slaveholders held a few or several domestic slaves, but others hired them out to work at labor.
Stuyvesant has been credited with improving law and order in the colony; however, he also earned a reputation as a despotic leader.
He instituted regulations on liquor sales, attempted to assert control over the Dutch Reformed Church, and blocked other religious groups (including Quakers, Jews, and Lutherans) from establishing houses of worship.
