The Five Boroughs of New York, each a separate county, surround or border the waterways of one of the world’s greatest harbors. Four of those five boroughs are built on islands, yet in most minds, New York is just one of those, Manhattan. Home to countless “firsts” and “greatests,” triumphs and tragedies, who doesn’t hold a firm impression of the city and its people, her man-made canyons, iconic vistas, legendary neighborhoods, accents, and attitudes? Yet it’s the incredible richness of the city’s life—theaters, stadiums, restaurants, shops, parks, museums, universities, street life, and air of opportunity that encourages 50 million visitors to come each year, and so many to make it their adopted home.
Mapped first by Giovanni da Verrazzano in 1524, the Dutch arrived in 1609 when Henry Hudson claimed the region for the Dutch. Who hasn’t heard Manhattan was purchased for $24 in glass beads? 60 Dutch Guilders is more like it, paid to the native Lenape people by Peter Minuit in 1626. New Amsterdam surrendered to the British in 1664, who promptly re-named the area for James, Duke of York and Albany (later King James II). This was the principal British headquarters during the American Revolution, and the U.S. capital when George Washington took office. The port city thrived, and in 1898 today’s Five Boroughs merged to create the City of New York.
