World City Histories


New York

1624 A.D.

Before The Big Apple was all hustle and bustle, it was known as New Amsterdam. The city dates back to 1624 A.D., making it one of the oldest continuously occupied European-established settlements in the continental United States. Before New York became a colony, the city spent periods of time under both Dutch and English rule. Prior to the arrival of Europeans, the region had been inhabited by Indigenous groups, most recently the Lenape.
