Because there were many cultural groups (languages and religions) in the colony of new york. Also, there was a built in harbor, because of the way long island is positioned and it becomes a natural harbor, the freedom of religion, there was a brilliant mix of people, languages, and cultures, there was room for everyone because people didn't find it yet. The soil was rich too and the harvest season was longer than Jamestown in Virgina at the time. So, you were basically guaranteed land food and freedom of religion.
