Historical Maps of New York City

 

This was the land of the Lenape people in the 16th century, when the first European explorers visited the region. At the beginning of the 17th century the Dutch West India Company decided to establish a trading post in Manatūs (Manhattan). The first families arrived in 1624 and later the Dutch settlement was named New Amsterdam.

In 1674, the English took control of the city and renamed it New York. After the Independence War (1775–83), New York was established as the capital of the United States of America. In 1789, George Washington was sworn in as the first president of the nation. New York also hosted the first meeting of Congress and the first sessions of the Supreme Court. In 1790, the nation's capital was transferred to Philadelphia.
