Henry Hudson

In 1609, English explorer Henry Hudson found New York Bay and the Hudson River while exploring for the Dutch. The Dutch began to settle the area. They traded with the natives for beaver furs which were popular in Europe at the time for making hats.


The first Dutch settlement was Fort Nassau established in 1614.Soon more settlements were built including Fort Orange in 1624 (which would later become Albany) and Fort Amsterdam in 1625. Fort Amsterdam would become the city of New Amsterdam which would later become New York City.

What are the 8 best New York foods?


PIZZAMost people have heard – if not eaten – pizza as you can find it in most major cities around the world. But there is nothing like a New York slice! NYC has hundreds, if not thousands,- of places to get pizza. It’s quintessentially a New York food.

BAGELS A bagel is a round bread product that is made with yeasted wheat dough that is shaped into a ring and boiled, then baked.

They are typically eaten at breakfast with butter or cream cheese on it. Bagels are believed to have been invented in the 1600s by Jewish communities in Poland. When Polish Jews immigrated to America in the late 19th century, bagels began to appear in NYC.

NEW YORK STYLE CHEESECAKE In 1872 an American dairyman William Lawrence of New York State unintentionally created cream cheese, similar to the French cheese Neufchâtel. New York-style cheesecake is different from traditional cheesecakes in that it includes heavy cream or sour cream. It is both silky and dense and can be quite sweet. There is nothing like it in the world.

PASTRAMI SANDWICH Pastrami is cured cuts of meat (similar to corned beef or brisket). The origins of pastrami go back to Romania. “Pastra” is the Romanian word for preserve — or in this case, cured. This style of cured meat made its way to America via Romanian Jewish immigrants who settled on the Lower East Side. Today the Lower East Side is where you can find the best pastrami sandwich in NY, at Katz’s Delicatessen.

First sold in the Lower East Side by a German immigrant in the 1860s, this quick and easy food caught on quickly in NYC. Now hot dogs are about as American as it gets. A recognizable sight in NYC, hot dog carts can be found just about anywhere in Manhattan.

HOT DOGSHot dogs are another food that existed long before it arrived in the U.S.

FALAFEL Falafel is a chickpea batter made with herbs and mild spices and deep-fried into a ball a bit smaller than a golf ball. Falafel is usually eaten in pita bread like a sandwich, with some lettuce and tomato garnish and tahini (sesame paste). Falafel sandwiches or even falafel balls on their own are a cheap and quick snack.

DOUGHNUTThe concept of the doughnut goes back centuries with variations across the globe.

An early form of the doughnut made their way to America with Dutch settlers in the 1600s. At that time, doughnuts did not have holes. In fact, the first hole-making machine was invented right here in New York City in 1920! Today, many people have access to doughnuts from the chain Dunkin’ Donuts, which has stores in over 36 countries. However, their donuts cannot compare with a freshly baked doughnut from a specialty doughnut shop.

BLACK-AND-WHITE COOKIE The origin of this cookie in NYC starts with a Bavarian immigrant bakery on the Upper East Side. This classic NY cookie is a big flat disc with a shortbread base and iced with fondant frosting. One half has vanilla fondant and the other half has chocolate, hence the name
