I believe that one way that we can move our county forward is by improving our infrastructure.

From the first part of this story, Peter Stuyvesant had just been named director general of the Dutch West India Company. His leadership lasted almost two decades. Leadership of the neighboring patroonship continued even though Kiliaen van Rensselaer died in 1643 and was replaced by his son Johan living in Amsterdam, Holland. The relationship between the two entities was convivial. However, tensions grew within the community’s expanding population. Illegal structures were being built outside the walls of the fort. Instead of destroying these buildings, Stuyvesant decided to establish a permanent village called Beverwijck, which became the center of the North American brewing world for well over 200 years. This civil settlement outside the fort and beyond the control of the patroonship was a success. Two more breweries were built and many home-based, unnamed breweries were established.
