"Norway's Presence in New York City"

While Bay Ridge, Brooklyn was the center of the Scandinavian population in the 1930's through the 1960's, Norwegians moved out from their original settlement in New Amsterdam in the 1630's to Brooklyn, where they settled and prospered. Red Hook was home to a sizeable Norwegian population from the mid-1800's.
