Event Details

Sailing down the river that would later bear his captains name, explorer Robert Juet described the Hudson River Valley in 1609 as a “drowned land” submerged by a “great lake of water”. Over the next two centuries, this drowned landscape would e the site of a truly historic flowering of art, literature, architecture, innovation, and revolutionary fervor. Join historian Vernon Benjamin as he illuminates the multifaceted history of New York’s great river with stories both familiar and revealing.
