This chapter discusses the Anglo-Dutch trade in New York. New York colonists continued pursuit of Dutch trade can be attributed to a commercial culture that prized interimperial exchange and an English administration that could not effectively staunch Dutch trading with English laws. Nevertheless, more effective, coercive, and coherent Restoration policies forced colonists to develop new legal and illegal techniques to maintain their interimperial trade, including more direct English colonial control over trade. By the end of the 1680s, colonists themselves managed more Anglo-Dutch trades than they had in earlier decades by learning to use small craft to hazard goods to Dutch vessels or islands, bribing officials, collaborating with English governors and port officials, and organizing the outport trade.
