History: 1614 the Dutch founded the village of New Amsterdam on the area of one of thebiggest cities today called New York. At that time the village only consisted of a mill, 30 houses and afort with thick walls. In the year 1626 Peter Minnewitt has been instructed bythe Dutch Westindian Company to buy the area of Manhattan; he only paid theamount of 60$ gold. Manhattan lays on the Hudson River. 1647 Peter Stuyvesantbecame governor of New Amsterdam. He conquered Fort Christian and stopped the Swedish expansions.
1667 in the peace of Brenda the British Empire got the area of New Amsterdam and the Dutchgot a part of Guyana instead. In this time the name has been changed to NewYork in order to remind the Earl of York.
In the year1620 there lived 2.000 employees, 80 years laterthe population has increased to 275.000 people and at 1776 the populationshowed approximately 2.5 million.

In the history of the United States of America New York hasbeen very important. Though the city refused to vote for the declaration ofindependence of Thomas Jefferson on the 4th July 1776. Nevertheless today theAmericans celebrate on the 4th July there Independence Day. In the peace treatyof Paris on the 3. September 1783 the USA were exempted as an own countryexisting of 13 states. In the 19th century many people moved to North-America.Most of the immigrants came through the harbour of New York which only has beenpossible by crossing the Erie-Channel. Up to the 1st World War 1.4 Mio. peoplecame to the USA. The next great immigration wave took place before and duringWorld War II.
The original population of New York has been Indians whichwere wiped out by the immigration of the settlers. Today only a few Indianslive in New York. The main part of the population consists of English speakingpeople. These are Englishmen, Scots, Welshmen and Irishmen. There are manyother groups who live in one of these different districts. Known were 'Little Italy', 'Chinatown' and the Jewishdistrict. Other immigrants didn't live so close together e.g. the Germans, theFrenchmen, the Polish, the Moslems and the Hispanics which were Spanishspeaking people. After the 2nd World War many immigrants came fromSouth-East-Asia. These were Koreans, Chinese people from Formosa, people fromVietnam and Cambodia.
