. Washington DC Tidbits .
An Algonquin people known as the Lenape were the first native people of New York, who farmed, hunted, and fished in the region between the Hudson and Delaware Rivers. In the early 1500’s, Europeans started exploring the area. The first white pioneer was an Italian who sailed along the Atlantic coast searching for a route to Asia, named Giovanni da Verrazano. However, until 1624, nobody settled in the area. The governor general of the settlement named Peter Minuit, bought, for the sum of 60 guilders, the much larger Manhattan Island from the natives in trade goods that included shell beads, cloth, farm equipment, and tools. Less than 300 people lived in New Amsterdam when the settlement relocated to Manhattan. However, the settlement grew rapidly and by 1760 had a population of 18,000 people and was renamed to New York. The community surpassed Boston in population and became the second-largest city in the American colonies. By 1810, the population of New York was 202,589 people, which made it largest city in the Western hemisphere. These days, the five boroughs have a combined population of over eight million people.
The Dutch lost New Amsterdam through seizure to the British, in 1664 and renamed it to New York. During the next 100 years, the population of New York City increased significantly and became even more diverse. The city included African slaves, indentured servants, as well as immigrants from Germany, France, England, and the Netherlands. Between 1785 and 1790, New York was the U.S. capital.
From the 1760’s through the 1770’s, the community was a hob for anti-British activity. For example, New Yorkers burned the royal governor in effigy and closed their businesses in protest, in 1765, after the British Parliament passed the Stamp Act. However, New York was also important strategically, and the British attempted to seize it practically as soon as the Revolutionary War started. In spite of the best efforts of the Continental Army in Harlem Heights and Brooklyn, led by George Washington, in 1776, New York was lost to the British. Until 1783, the city served as a military base for the British.
By 1810, the city was one of the most important ports in the country, after recovering rapidly from the war. It played an especially significant role in the cotton economy. Planters from the south would send their crop to the East River docks, where it was transported to the mills of English industrial cities, such as Manchester. Next, the manufacturers of the textile would transport their finished goods back to New York.
However, it was difficult to transport goods back and forth from the growing agricultural hinterlands to the west and the north, until 1817, when work started on a 363-mile canal between Lake Erie and the Hudson River. In 1825, the Erie Canal was finished. Finally, New York was the trading capital of the country.
Some infrastructural improvements were made as the city grew. The Commissioner’s Plan organized an orderly grid of avenues and streets for the undeveloped portions of Manhattan just north of Houston Street in 1811. Building started on the Croton Aqueduct in 1837, which provided clean water for the growing population of the community. The community established the first municipal agency, which was the New York Police Department in 1845.
In the meantime, between the 1840’s, and the 1850’s, an increasing number of immigrants, from Ireland, Germany, and then from Southern and Eastern Europe changed the character of the community. They organized social clubs, churches, joined unions, started political organizations as well as businesses, and settled in distinct ethnic neighborhoods. For instance, the predominantly Irish-American Democratic club called Tammany Hall became the most powerful political machine in the city by trading favors such as services and jobs, and other kinds of aid for votes.
By the end of the 1800’s, New York City became the current city of today. The residents of Brooklyn, Staten Island, the Bronx, and Queens, which were all independent communities at the time, decided to combine with Manhattan in order to create Greater New York, with five boroughs in 1895. The result of this effort was the New York went from a population of just over two million people and an area of 60 square miles in 1897 to a population of approximately 3.35 million people and an area of 360 square miles in 1898.
The 1900’s was a great period of great struggle for the cities in America, and New York was no exception. Following WW II the building of suburbs and interstate highways encouraged the wealthier people to leave the city, which combined with economic changes, such as de- industrialization to lower the tax base, which diminished public services. As a result, there was more migration out of the city, which came to be known as white flight. In the meantime, the 1965 Mationality and Hart-Cellar Immigration Act allowed immigrants from Latin America, the Caribbean, Africa, and Asia immigrate to the U.S. Many neighborhoods were revitalized as many of these new residents settled in New York.
New York suffered one of the deadliest terrorist attacks in U.S. history when some terrorists crashed two hijacked airliners into the tallest buildings in the city, which were the World Trade Center’s twin towers on September 11, 2001. Almost 3,000 people lost their lives and the buildings were destroyed. The city remained a major tourist attraction and financial in the wake of the disaster, with more than 40 million tourists visiting New York every year.
These days, over eight million residents of New York City live in the five boroughs. Over one-third of these residents were born outside the U.S. Thanks to the vibrant intellectual life and diversity, the city is still the cultural capital of the U.S.
