Fort Orange was the first (1624 near present day Albany) and New Amsterdam was the second (1626 on the south end of present day Manhattan island). The settlers of Fort Orange were mainly Dutch. New Amsterdam was also comprised of many nationalities. They included Dutch, English, German, Irish, Polish, Walloons (from Belgium), and a few Jewish Brazilians.
