New York City Area History
The history of New York City is long and storied. It was first discovered by Europeans in 1524, but before that it was home to many Lenape Indians. Major battles of the Revolutionary War were fought here, including the Battle of Fort Washington. Following the war, the city served as the capital of the United States for about five years, until Philadelphia became the capital in 1800. Since then, it has blossomed into the booming metropolis that is well-known around the world.
