Bowery

Origin: D. Bouwerij.

a farm or plantation with its buildings. The emigrants [in new York] were scattered on boweries or plantations; and seeing the evils of this mode of living widely apart, they were advised, in 1643 and 1646, by the dutch authorities, to gather into villages, towns, and hamlets, as the english were in the habit of doing.'
