How "Crazy History" got its name

In 2018 Daniel J. Watts, 

original "Hamilton" cast member,

seven-time Broadway performer,

currently starring

as Ike Turner in TINA, the Musical

treated us to three original raps. 


It was his first trip to Staten Island.


When Watts found out that Aaron Burr

died across the street he was amazed,




Yes Daniel, it's crazy

 -- that so much of Dutch

Staten Island history, is untold!!!
