The 300th Anniversary of New York City
Dutch settlers founded New York City in 1625. At that time it was known as New Amsterdam. In 1653, the Dutch incorporated New Amsterdam as the capital of New Netherland. Since that time, it has attracted immigrants from all over the world. These immigrants have come from many different lands for many different reasons, but all were looking to start a new life in a free land. The Statue of Liberty, placed in New York Harbor in 1886, came to represent this quest for a new life.
 
New York City is the largest city in the United States, and the sixth largest in the world. It is home to more than twice as many people as any other city in the U.S. In fact, it has more people than 42 U.S. states. Many people consider New York City to be the capital of the world, truly worthy of its nickname, the “Big Apple.”
