The Dutch fleet, which re-captured New York under Cornelius Evertsen's command, is shown off Long Island. "The sight of a fleet of heavily armed Dutch ships…entering New York Harbor…must have been a shock to the town's residents…The Restitutio View, which depicts the town as seen directly from the east, enables one to visualize some of its features that were only schematically showed on earlier maps. On the right-hand side of the view is part of the wall that became Wall Street with its guardhouse and gate. To the right of the wall are the new settlements [to the] north" (Augustyn and Cohen, Manhattan in Maps, pp.46-47).
