New York - From then to now
The settlement of New York from Europe was associated with Giovanni da
Verrazano in 1524 and with Henry Hudson in 1609 - from 1610 with Dutch
merchants. In 1626 Peter Minuit bought the island “Manna-hatta” from the locals,
probably Lenni-Lenape-Indians, for goods worth 60 guilders. The settlement
founded was then named Nieuw Amsterdam and was initially the capital of
the colony Nieuw Nederland.
Captured by the English in 1664
Later in 1664, New York was conquered by the English who gave the city the
current name "New York". In the 18th century, during the War of Independence,
New York was occupied by the English and only abandoned when the independence of
the USA was recognized by all European states.

In the 19th century the city began to grow rapidly - which, however, also
brought several epidemics such as typhus with it. In order to make life
in the city more pleasant and to create space for relaxation, the famous Central
Park was created.
The 5 urban areas of Manhattan, Brooklyn, Staten Island, Queens and the
In the beginning, urban areas such as Brooklyn were independent cities. In
1889, Manhattan, Brooklyn, Richmond (now Staten Island), Queens and
the Bronx joined forcesto Greater New York together. New York was hit
particularly hard by the financial crisis in the early 20th century. The
unemployment rate reached 25% and many people left the city. Even after the
Second World War, things continued to decline after a short recovery. Crime
rates rose sharply and the city was heavily in debt. The mayor Rudolph Giuliani
was only able to renovate the city in the 1990s. He drastically reduced crime
rates. As a result, there was a renewed influx of citizens who wanted to live in

The Statue of Liberty is New York's most famous landmark.
Worldwide it is the symbol of freedom.
"Statue of Liberty"
The Statue of Liberty, called the "Statue of Liberty" by the Americans, was
designed by the sculptor Frédéric-Auguste Bartholdi to commemorate freedom.
It took him 21 years to complete the statue. The monument was then handed
over to the Americans by the French, or given as a gift. The inauguration of the
monument took place on October 28th, 1886 on the "Freedom Island" off New York.
The steel frame of the Statue of Liberty, clad with copper plates, was
developed by Gustave Eiffel (The Builder of the Eiffel Tower in Paris). The
height of the statue is 46 m and the weight 225 tons. It is adorned with a crown
with seven rays (symbolizing the seven seas and the continents). The "Statue of
Liberty" stands on the broken chains of slavery and holds the declaration of
independence with the date "July 4, 1776" in its left hand.
The statue stands on a huge star-shaped base and is embedded between the
walls of an old army fort. The anchoring of the Statue of Liberty in the base
was accomplished with a 47 m high support column. Today it is also a lookout
point from which one can overlook Manhattan. The American Museum of Immigration
is also located in the base of the Statue of Liberty. There you can learn
everything about the history of immigration and the construction of the statue.
The Statue of Liberty was closed to visitors after the terrorist attacks on
the World Trade Center in New York. Only now has the Statue of Liberty been
partially opened again. However, one must undergo a strict security check before
viewing. Visitors are only allowed to climb onto the viewing platform on the
16-story high base. The statue itself will remain closed until further notice.
According to the US government's Interior Secretary Gale Norton, the reopening
is a sign that freedom cannot be blackmailed. She rejected the criticism of the
US media, according to which the limited access to the Statue of Liberty is to
be seen as a success of terrorism. The justification from the New York City
Council, why the visit is limited to the 50 m high observation deck, is due to
the low security z. B. in fires. Not only the Statue of Liberty, but also other
New York attractions were closed to visitors after September 11, 2001.
