New York is one of the main hubs of the United States and the most populous city in the country. Despite this, New York City is not actually the capital of New York State. That honor goes to Albany, a much smaller administrative center for the State of New York. New York City, however, is the hustle and bustling tourist attraction that brings millions of visitors every year, for the theaters, the shopping and the landmarks.
A Little about the History
The city’s history is traced back to around 1624 when it was founded as a small trading post by Dutch colonists. It was originally named, in 1626, as New Amsterdam because of the connections with the Dutch capital. However, in 1664, King Charles II of England renamed New Amsterdam to New York, after the City of York in England. New York, was by then, under English control and Charles II gave the land to his brother, the Duke of York. Until 1790 New York was the capital of the United States but was then changed to Philadelphia and then to Washington D.C.
One of the most famous sights you will see in New York City is the Statue of Liberty—a gift from the people of France in 1886. The 151 foot statue greeted the millions of immigrants as they passed by on their way to Ellis Island. Today, she is a beacon of truth and justice as well as freedom. The City is also one of the main trading hubs of the world, which attracts big businesses and therefore hundreds of thousands of workers to the area. The city is noteworthy for its diverse architecture and wide style ranges, as well as apartment blocks.
