The Best of Historic New York



Description:

History lurks around every corner in New York, which was founded as the Dutch trading outpost of New Amsterdam in the early 17th century. The list below includes some of the most fascinating places to discover the history of the city and its people, as well as one spot--Ellis Island, the arrival point for some 16 million immigrants from 1892 to 1954--that more rightly belongs to the history of America itself.
