New York history:

The Algonquin Indians were the original inhabitants of Manhattan Island. It wasn't until April of 1524, that the white man even saw the island. Giovanni da Verrazano came, but was not able to land due to weather. Esteban Gomez for Spain, also tried to explore the area, but again, bad weather prevented his trek. FInally, in September of 1609, Henry Hudson, with the Dutch East India Company, was able to anchor and land on Manhattan. He made a short stay of just a month and then left. By 1610, the Dutch had begun to trade with the Indians here building up a thriving business. A charter was granted in 1621 to organize the Dutch West India Company. By 1623, many Dutch emigrants had arrived in Manhattan. The first leader of the Colony was Peter Minuit, then Wouter Van Twiller. Next, Willem Kieff was named as the director of the colony. Finally, Peter Stuyvesant arrived frmo Holland to be the new director. His strict leadership was needed due to the problems left from previous directors. There was much trouble during this time and in 1652, a war was narrowly avoided between England and Holland. For more detailed history, see this history page for New York City.
