LOCATION: Wyckoff Farmhouse Museum/ 5816 Clarendon Road at Ralph Avenue/ East Flatbush/ BROOKLYN

EVENT & PHOTO-OP: Parks Commissioner Adrian Benepe and Wyckoff Farmhouse Association Chairman E. Lisk Wyckoff will welcome Dutch Prime Minister Jan Peter Balkenende to the Wyckoff Farmhouse—his first stop upon his arrival in New York City. The visit will include a tour of the Dutch farmhouse, an unveiling of plans for the barn that will be raised at the site, colonial cooking activities and a song sang in Dutch by schoolchildren from P.S. 119.

DETAILS:

In celebration of the 400th Anniversary of Henry Hudson’s voyage and NYC’s Dutch heritage, Dutch Prime Minister Jan Peter Balkenende will be making his first visit to the Wyckoff Farmhouse. Built c. 1652, Wyckoff Farmhouse is New York City and New York State’s oldest historic structure and one of the country’s ten oldest structures. Plans will be unveiled for the 19th-century Wyckoff-Durling Barn Education Center that will be raised at the site—the first barn-raising in Brooklyn in more than 150 years. The Farmhouse will also be celebrating its annual Apple Festival with apple pressing, fresh apple cider and apple fritters, live music and more.

Also in attendance will be Consul General of the Netherlands in New York Hugo Gajus Scheltema, Dutch Ambassador to the U.S. Renée Jones, Brooklyn Borough President Marty Markowitz, Assembly Member Joseph R. Lentol Historic House Trust Executive Director Franklin D. Vagnone, Wyckoff Farmhouse Association board members and Wyckoff descendents.

The Wyckoff Farmhouse Museum is owned by NYC Parks & Recreation, operated by the Wyckoff House & Association, and is a member of the Historic House Trust.

Representatives from Amersfoort Netherlands contacted the Amersfort School of Social Awareness earlier this year to ask if we were interested in collaborating on a cultural exchange with the schools in the Amersfoort District in the Netherlands. Since our school had just become a Magnet School for Global & Ethical Studies and our $100,000 technology grant just came through, we were thrilled. We have met with the ANYtime-US-NL committee and have plans for our schools to collaborate on blog projects over this academic year culminating in a Cultural Fair in June 2009 to celebrate the 750th anniversary of the founding of Amersfoort, NL and the quadricentennial of Henry Hudson’s voyage to the New World from Amsterdam.

Last week, Koen Steenbergen & Sabine van Erkel came to visit our school and kicked off a cookie contest that was happening concurrently in the Netherlands. We talked about our historical connection with the Netherlands here in New York and Brooklyn and our future connection with “the two Amersforts.” With community support and careful planning, we could see a carnival-style celebration of the Hudson & Amersfoort Anniversaries right here in Avenue J’s Amersfort Park.

Yet again, the Internet has brought us a little closer in this every-shrinking world. A Google search turned up our school and the Amersfoort group contacted us through my Board of Ed e-mail account. To the Amerfoort group’s surprise, I speak Dutch (and lived in Amsterdam as a child) and my colleague Jenny Hobson, has a Dutch connection through her boyfriend. Jenny went to Amersfoort earlier in the year to visit their school and brought back letters and drawings that were bound into a picture book made by their students.
