Dutch officials in NY

So what's the connection between "bowling, the Bowery, Brooklyn, the Bronx, Harlem, Stuyvesant Town, the Yankees, the Roosevelts and cole slaw?"

According to New York City podcaster Sam Roberts, they’re all part of New York’s unique Dutch heritage. He's got an interesting, Quad-related piece in the New York Times this week. Among his observations, the news that Dutch officials (including the prime minister, the foreign minister and the heir to the Dutch throne) were in New York City this week to kick off the NYC-Quad celebration. With all that's happening in the news these days (Economy. War. Mets!) I guess the visit kind of slipped under the radar for major news outlets.
