New York was founded in the 17th century by Dutch settlers. Even on maps that are almost 400 years old, you can see famous names like Wall Street and Broadway - hard to believe when you look at Manhattan from the view gallery of the Empire State Building.
Visit the Museum of the City of New York for an insight into the city's development. New York is constantly renewing itself. An old butcher's district has become an ultra-fashionable area with restaurants, bars and boutiques, the High-Line elevated railway has become a nature trail in the air, and, most inspiring, the One World Trade Center has emerged as the new landmark of Manhattan's skyline.
