New Amsterdam's Chadwijks
New Amsterdam’s Chadwijk’s (2007-ongoing)
Another component of our research for the family deals with the rich materials of the Anglo/Dutch branch of the family that settled in New Amsterdam, some with the variant name Chadwijk. Our research into this line of the family is very much ongoing; still, we have felt it appropriate here to include some documentation of this treasure trove: an aesthetic treatise, Foreground Floor Debris; a study model, The Golden-Age Microbrewery (pictured above), and Fort Chadwijk, the transcript of a tour of the architectural contributions to New Amsterdam made by the designer and engineer Cornelius van der Chadwijk.
