I have long enough been the whore of the nobility. From now on I shall be the whore of the rabble.
– Griet Reyniers aka Grietje Reyniers, one of the first known hookers of modern America, some time in the 1630s.
Griet Reyniers, one of the little birds of the night, is said to have spoken those delectable words in a moment of despair after being cast out by her lover Wouter Van Twiller, governor of the new colony of Dutch Manhattan, in the 1630s.
