Minuit's LegacyThe English took over the Dutch colony in 1664, and New Amsterdam became New York. But the Dutch roots still thrive. Peter Minuit and his compatriots set Manhattan on course as a melting pot and business hub. The settlers weren't motivated by lofty ideals. There was a policy of tolerance, but also refusal to adhere to it. Their society didn't have the neat outline that spawned the Puritan myth in New England.
