Why did the English take New York from the Dutch?
The English did not so much take New York from the dutch, they
convinced them to a trade of territory.
I do now know the exact details of the deal, but I know Surinam
was controlled by the English at that point in time, and power of
this territory was transferred to the dutch in exchange for New
York, there might have been a lot more to the deal, but this is
what I know.
