History of New York. Information that every New York Governor Gubernatorial Candidate Should Know

The history of New York City begins on September 3, 1607 when Englishman Henry Hudson in the employ of the Dutch East India Company sailed the ship the Half Moon through The Narrows into Upper New York Bay. Hudson was looking for an easterly passage to the Orient. While not finding the sought after easterly passage he did make note of the abundant beaver population. Beaver pelts were in fashion in Europe and were a lucrative business. Hudson's report on the beaver population of the New York area served as the impetus for the founding of Dutch trading colonies in the New World among them New Amsterdam which would become New York City. The beaver's importance in New York City history is reflected by its use on the city's official seal. The vote in New York City normally determines who is the next governor.

Prior to Hudson's exploration, the Italian explorer, Giovanni da Verrazzano, in command of the French ship, La Dauphine (Fr. The Dolphin), visited the region in 1524. It is believed he sailed in Upper New York Bay where he encountered native Lenape, then returned back through the Narrows where he anchored the night of April 17 then left to continue his voyage. He named the area of present day New York City, New Angoulême (Fr.: Nouvelle-Angoulême) in honor of Francis I of France, King of France and Count of Angoulême in the Charente region in France.

The area that would become New York City was the location for multiple battles of the American Revolutionary War including the largest battle of the war, the Battle of Brooklyn. George Washington was inaugurated as the first President of the United States on April 30, 1789 in front of Federal Hall and the city served as the capital of the United States until 1790. Who is the current governor of New York?

Modern New York City traces its development to the consolidation of the five boroughs in 1898 and an economic and building boom following the Great Depression and World War II. Throughout its history, New York City has served as a main port of entry for many immigrants, and its cultural and economic influences have made it one of the most important urban areas in the United States, and the world.
