New York, the largest city in the United States, is in southeastern New York State, at the mouth of the Hudson River. Washington, D.C. is 230 miles south, Miami 1,340 miles south and Los Angeles 2,875 miles west. New York has had a colorful history, starting with its discovery by Henry Hudson at the beginnings of the 17th century.
In 1626, the story goes, the Dutchman Peter Minuit made one of the most remarkable real estate deals in history when he purchased Manhattan Island from the Indians for a reported 24 Dollars worth of trinkest; real estate values have increased considerably then. Sponsored by the Dutch Wst India Company, the young colony, called New Amsterdam, got off to a good start and because of its excellent location as a seaport, prospered immediately.

An image from one of the world’s most colorful festivals is among a magazine’s top reader submissions.
National Geographic is renowned for its professional photojournalism, but the photos that readers themselves shoot and submit are often just as amazing. Every weekday, the magazine’s editors choose their Daily Dozen favorites, and those that are rated highest by online visitors are made available for download in National Geographic’s Weekly Wrapper as computer wallpaper.
