NY: Going Dutch for 400 Years...

The Dutch Royal Family sent Prince Willem-Alexander and Princess Máxima of the House of Orange to congratulate New York City as well as President and Mrs. Obama on 400 years of Dutch-American friendship. Here's a link to the NY400 website.

As my mother was born in Scheveningen, and came to New York as a refugee from Hitler, where she worked for the Dutch Ministry of Shipping (of the government-in-exile)I think it is very nice.

To all our Dutch readers: Gelukwensen!
