As the New York City (NYC) Mayoral race comes to a close, I think we should take a step back and reflect on the bigger picture of how NYC came to be what it is today. It was once a good, White city that was perhaps the magnum opus of American cities. It eventually descended into something weird, perverse, disgusting, and above all else; alien. The non-Hispanic, non-Jewish White population of New York City today is less than 20% of the city’s total population. This is a city that was more than 95% White for most of its history since European colonization.
NYC is one of the most important destinations in the world, for better or for worse. It has been described as the cultural, financial and media capital of the world. NYC is situated on one of the world’s largest natural harbors making it a hub for trade and commerce. It had a beautiful landscape before the Dutch arrived in 1624 which featured rich and fertile farmland, rolling hills, boulders and forests with wildlife abound.
In 1609, English explorer Henry Hudson was hired by the Dutch East India Company to find a trade passage to India. On his expedition, Hudson stumbled upon the New York Harbor and took a detour into New York. Upon his visit, Hudson wrote “the land is the finest for cultivation that I ever in my life set foot upon.” The Hudson River was wide, full of fish and NYC was one of the most aesthetically pleasing, natural areas in all the world.
New York was established as a Dutch fur trading settlement in 1624. It established a permanent European presence in lower Manhattan, situated right in between the Hudson River and the East River. The Dutch called it New Amsterdam at the time. New Amsterdam was a good city. A White city. There were Lenape Indians, black slaves and Jews living on the colony but they didn’t have the numbers or the influence to challenge the dominance of the European settlers. The residents of New Amsterdam lived a very plain, traditional lifestyle and it reflected the good-natured spirit of the Dutch. The men typically tended to the fields or hunted Beavers for their pelts while the women worked in medicine and housekeeping among other things. Children worked with their fathers on the field or their mothers in the home by the time they were 7. Citizens were encouraged to attend Church on Sundays to create a sense of camaraderie in the community and give people a place to reflect on their blessings. Peter Stuyvesant, the Director-General of the New Netherland colony laid the groundwork for the expansion of Manhattan with infrastructure projects including a protective wall on Wall Street. He attempted to instill a common racial and religious culture to bind the people of the colony together through his opposition to religious pluralism, and a particularly harsh opposition towards Jews who he viewed as incompatible both religiously and racially. Even though New Amsterdam was a good settlement where you could live, work and worship surrounded by people with a common flesh and blood, it was merely a commercial outpost at the end of the day. Settlers were employees of the Dutch West India Company and everything they produced went toward the end goal of enriching a small number of greedy merchants on the other side of the world.
The English took control of the city in 1664 and renamed New Amsterdam to New York. English common laws were applied as the City became a Colony of England after a bloodless revolution which saw the English gain control of the land from the Dutch. The city grew and expanded as a trading port and developed a character as one of the most important and liveliest places of the New World. Roads, docks, churches, bridges, hospitals, prisons, multiple story housing, open air fish and meat markets, farms, manufacturing houses and government buildings were just a few of the infrastructure projects that defined this new and impressive city. Live music was a feature in the streets and taverns. NYC was the largest importer of black slaves in the American colonies and it served as a safe haven for foreigners and merchants from all around the world due to the bustling, businesslike atmosphere that permeated the city. One visitor said “it rather hurts a European eye to see so many Negro slaves upon the streets.” There was an abundance of prostitution, there was no shortage of street bums, criminals and alcoholics and sometimes gangs extorted businesses and citizens. But there was no doubt in anyone’s mind that New York was a White, European city and it remained that way until the post World War 2 era.
New York was a key location during the American Revolution and it featured the largest battle of the war, the battle of Long Island which took place within modern day Brooklyn. New York was a key networking location for the “Sons of Liberty” a group that sought independence from the British and courted people to engage in fiery protests against taxation laws such as the Stamp Act. NYC was home to the Committee of Sixty and the New York Provincial Congress which was a prelude to the Continental Congress and eventually the United States Congress. Angry citizens melted a statue of King George the III erected in Bowling Green park and used the remains as musket balls. General George Washington sought to establish New York as a Continental stronghold due to the waterways that made seagoing trade easy and efficient and could be used as a naval base. Washington and his forces were overwhelmed by the larger British fleets and were driven out of NYC at the Battle of Long Island. Shortly after the British re-occupied New York from the colonists the Great Fire of New York City broke out which destroyed 10-25% of its buildings. Some believed this to be a result of revolutionary activity from people who supported the patriot cause. New York remained a British stronghold for the rest of the War and it was the home to many American POW’s who were forced to live in makeshift prison ships in Wallabout Bay under brutal conditions. George Washington returned to the city to raise the flag of the stars and stripes and symbolically evacuate the British in November of 1783. There are still many roads, bridges, monuments and arenas in NYC dedicated to the men of this time even though the city has changed so drastically over the centuries. New York was the first capital city of the United States and it is where George Washington’s first presidential inauguration occurred, but it moved to Philadelphia in 1790.
During the 19th century NYC experienced a period of massive expansion which saw the creation of an ambitious city infrastructure plan, massive population growth and the settlement of people far beyond Lower Manhattan. The 1811 Commissioner’s Plan and the building of the Eerie canal provided a need for workers. Many of these people were from Ireland and Germany as the United States was very welcoming of White immigrants from Northwestern Europe. New York quickly became the most important city in the United States in terms of its economic sway because it became the center of trade with Europe. The steamship was introduced in the 19th century along with improved roads for station wagons, bridges for land travel between the boroughs, aqueducts and above ground railroads. Despite this increase of infrastructure most buildings did not rise above 10 stories high by the end of the century. Still there was a comical lack of government regulation as people were forced to work in factories for 16 hours a day to pay their bills and Tammany Hall was rife with corruption and bribery. The protestant core of New York changed in the 19th century as Irish Catholic immigrants arrived in mass. Southern Europeans and Jews also began to arrive in the late 19th century as the city progressed in its transformation toward a totally alien, incohesive, perverse, melting pot culture. But in the 19th century New York was still a thoroughly White city with non-Hispanic Whites making up about 95% or more of the New York population. New York was a cultural center for great White minds in the arts, literature, architecture, and industry. Famed authors such as Washington Irving, Edgar Allan Poe and Herman Melville took up their residence in NYC. Groundbreaking scientific achievements were made in New York from the likes of Nikola Tesla and the city was a hub for innovation. Even the most degenerate areas such as the five points which was rife with crime, corruption, poverty, disease and other sad conditions still had an admirable Aryan presence and aura. This was reflected in the Scorsese movie “The Gangs of New York”. New York also had a White Nationalist fervor in the 19th century which was reflected by the Whig Party, the popular artwork of Thomas Nast, but most notably the New York City draft riots of 1863. In the New York City draft riots working class white men rose up in protest against the Lincoln government. The anti-war, military conscription protest eventually turned into a race riot when White rioters attacked black people and black property in the city which resulted in a large black exodus from Manhattan to Brooklyn. These men did not want black people to come in to NYC and compete with them for jobs, housing and other resources. They were supported by political leaders such as Fernando Wood and George Pendleton.
The 20th century saw New York grow even more rapidly. The sheer size and scale of NYC is undoubtedly impressive but there becomes a point in time when unfettered growth becomes ugly and harmful like a cancer. The natural wildlife of NYC was completely destroyed and the landscape of rolling hills, fertile land and beautiful forests was turned into a massive block of steel and concrete. Jews began to make their way into New York in mass in the early 20th century and work their way into the elite. They made a push for New York to become more diverse, less “American” in the traditional sense, less White, and they succeeded. Whether it was Emma Lazarus’s poem “The New Colossus” or the backbreaking philosophical work of the “New York Intellectuals“, Jews pushed and promoted an incohesive, alien world with no dominant cultural, religious or linguistic identity much less a racial identity. And New York City is the city that came to embody the soul of the Jew. They don’t call it “Jew York” for nothing. This is a world where the Jews feel comfortable. The heroism of the NYC skyscraper workers, the construction of an intricate underground Subway system and the popularization of the New York Yankees and the all-American, implicitly White sport of baseball was the last flare of a dying Aryan dominance in NYC. The White population of the city drastically declined making up more than 90% of the city in 1900 to about 20% of the city’s population by 2000.
NYC today is the pre-eminent example of what Jewish cosmopolitanism looks like. You have the financial center of the world, Wall Street which is the home base for all sorts of financial scams and schemes and insider trading racquets. You have the New York Times, a newspaper outlet that promotes every woke identity issue, gay rights issue, trans rights issue and vilifies White identity. And then you have an unholy mixture of freaks, criminals, foreigners, homosexuals with AIDS and obese welfare moms perusing the streets in a densely populated urban slum. You will see massive gay pride festivals where kinky freaks will show off their genitals to children and 8 year old boys dress up in drag as they leave historical monuments littered with garbage. You can walk entire blocks in NYC and not here anyone speak a lick of English. This city is not our city. Take a trip on the New York Subway and you will likely find yourself sitting next to a Transgendered freak with blue hair, a mentally ill homeless person licking his shoes, a black criminal who has just been released from prison or a Korean man who doesn’t speak English. This is what New York City looks like and it is Jewish heaven.
New York City has always been a Cosmopolitan city. In the past it was ruled by a Protestant, Judaized elite more concerned with making money than taking care of people and building something admirable. It is not hard to see how New York City ended up the way it is today despite there being admirable qualities and lost beauties of New York’s past.
