While VOV (Vereenigde Oostindische Compagnie) operated in the Indian Ocean, the Dutch West Indies Company, or WIC, piled the Atlantic. In order to control trade on the important Hudson River, WIC built a settlement called New Amsterdam on an island at the river's mouth. The colony was threatened by Indians and repeatedly attacked by the British, who eventually captured it in 1664. The British changed its name to New York. The remains of the wall built by WIC to defend its colony against Indians and British are today paved over by the world's most famous street -- Wall Street. ~ Page 322 Excerpt "Sapiens - A Brief History of Human kind" ~ Yuval Noah Harari
