New York City is a major history-hub, and the best way to learn about the history is to truly immerse yourself in the culture yourself! First founded by the Dutch along the Hudson River in 1624, New Amsterdam was established 2 years later on Manhattan Island. The English later took over the area in 1664, renaming the city New York. Between 1892 and 1954, millions of immigrants arrived in New York Harbor, first passing through Ellis Island on their journey to becoming U.S citizens. Throughout the many years, the city has evolved in various manners and the melting pot of cultures is truly evident throughout. From the Bronx, Harlem, Manhattan, and Brooklyn, visit New York and explore its rich history from the inside out, down cobblestoned streets and over the river.
