History and Origins of New York

New York is the main financial and cultural center and most densely populated city in the United States. The city is generally called New York City or City of New York to differentiate it from the State of New York, of which is part but not capital; Albany is the capital of the State of New York.

New York is today’s largest hub for finance, media, fashion, research and technology; often described as the capital of the world, NYC has also been selected as the headquarters of the United Nations.NYC rises on one of the world’s largest natural harbors; the city is comprised of 5 districts or Boroughs: Manhattan, The Bronx, Brooklyn, Queens and Staten Island, which were originally combined in one city in 1898.

New York origins are Dutch; the city was founded by Dutch colonist in 1624 with the name of New Amsterdam (1626). The area was later on taken by the British (1664) and renamed New York after the Duke of York, brother of King Charles II of England.

New York, briefly, served as Capital from 1785 to 1790 and since then it has been the largest city of the USA. A diversely and culturally rich city, New York offers an incredible variety of activities; many famous Museums and Monuments welcome more than 50 million visitors every single year.

See New York Monuments & Landmarks

If you come from Europe, and the Old World, talking about Monuments and Historic Sites alongside New York, it can make you smile a little, but on the contrary, New York has lots to offer when it comes to History. The importance and the beauty of some buildings is indisputable. While drawing on different architectural styles over the years, the city has managed to create his own identity. Impossible not to recognize New York from a photo or a movie. Together with the monuments and historical sites, we have added other sites that, despite being new, maintain that innovative desire that has always distinguished the city of New York.

If you love art, science, history and nature ... in short, if you love museums, New York is your destination! I know there is so much to visit in the city but try not to leave New York, if you haven't at least visited the major museums: MoMa, Met, Museum of Natural History and the Guggenheim, and for the lovers of small museums, we recommend The Frick Collection, which it houses an important private collection and allows you to visit one of the most important, and beautiful, Fifth Avenue Mansion.

All the major Museums offer free entries at certain times and days of the week, while other museums are always totally free.
