New Amsterdam Eateries



Dutch artist/photograper Wijnwanda Deroo’s photographs of empty restaurants were taken in each of New York City’s boroughs except Staten Island. Part of a 2009 project called “Dutch Seen”, which was a celebration of the 400th anniversary of Henry Hudson’s “discovery” of New Amsterdam, Deroo’s notion was to use vacant restaurant interiors as a reflection of the diverse cultures, peoples and neighborhoods of New York City.

An engaging show of her photo essay called “Inside New York Eateries” is on view at the Robert Mann Gallery in NYC through january 29th.
