|New York City Skyline|
New York, New York
Bright lights and big city. New York, the biggest city in the United States since 1790 and one of the biggest cities in the world. Home of Broadway, the Yankees, and the Statue of Liberty.
Once called New Amsterdam, New York was settled in the early 17th century by the Dutch. The city was later seized by the British and given its name by King Charles II of England, who gave the lands to his brother, the Duke of York. As one of the largest natural harbors in the world, New York welcomed flocks of immigrants via Ellis Island and has served as a major world power and trading city since its beginning.
A city rich in culture and vibrant night life - the lights are always on!!!
Be Blessed and be a blessing!
