Up to 20 New York Map Society 2023 members, only, will meet at 10:45 am in Fordham University’s Walsh Family Library lobby, 441 E Fordham Rd, The Bronx, NY 10458. We will review maps in a conference room with Special Collections Librarian Gabi/Gabriella DiMeglio, and then quietly and individually view New Amsterdam maps on display in the Reading Room. Per University requirements, all visitors will have to show photo IDs and proof of Covid vaccination to show guards at the campus gates.
Here is a link to the Dutch New York maps on display on the walls in the reading room. https://www.library.fordham.edu/digital/browse/DUTCHMAPS
Members may want to grab a pastry and coffee or lunch at nearby Arthur Avenue, New York’s authentic Italian market area. Check this GUIDE. (https://westchestermagazine.
