Along with their new found prosperity, colonists in New York dealt with several problems:

- Interactions with the Native Americans were not always friendly. Dutch soldiers and even civilians killed many Indian families.

- The colony's economy (farmers upstate, business downstate) and political viewpoints were mixed and often clashed

- Peter Stuyvesant faced many problems including the smuggling of goods and the non-payment of taxes

- Religious freedom did not exist in New Amsterdam (New York)
