Old Amsterdam Potato au Gratin
Old Amsterdam part of NYC Harbor Day

On September 13th, Old Amsterdam was part of the first Harbor Day ever in New York City. The Old Amsterdam flat bottom boat joined the parade of Dutch and American ships that circled the Statue of Liberty and sail up the Hudson River. The highlight of Harbor Day was the grand 'Holland on the Hudson' flotilla, with the Half Moon replica as centerpiece. Thousands of people watched the parade from the shores of lower Manhattan.

Old Amsterdam is a proud sponsor of an old Dutch flat bottom from Huizen, a village in the Netherlands were the Westland company was founded. The authentic fisherman’s boat is part of a flotilla of 17 leeboard vessels from Holland that are apart of different NY400 festivities from September 8th until 20th.
