National Heritage Triangle in New York harbor would represent America's three fundamental values of tolerance, freedom and welcome as embodied by Governors Island, Liberty Island and Ellis Island, respectively. The notion of tolerance will be symbolized by a 50-acre, not-for-profit, Historic New Amsterdam park as a museum park-to-tolerance. Tolerance was planted as a legal-political condition on American shore by New York's first official settlers who disembarked on Governors Island in 1624 - the birth date of, amongst other, New York, New Jersey and Connecticut. It was America�s earliest pluralistic community - an enlightened culture of inclusion and diversity - unprecedented at the time. It constitutes the basis of New York's cultural history and derives from the one non-English society that founded a colony among the original thirteen. Freedom has no meaning in an intolerant society. Tolerance, therefore, precedes liberty. It is New York's unique contribution to the nation and requires one's respect and considerateness as an implicit gift to another.
