New York City 2018: Best of New York City, NY Tourism.

In 1664, the city was named after then Duke of York , and future King of England James II . Charles II , King of England, James's older brother, had named him proprietor of the former territory of New Netherlands and its main city of New Amsterdam , which had recently been seized from the Dutch.

During the Wisconsinan glaciation , the New York City region was situated at the edge of a large ice sheet over 1,000 feet (300 m) in depth. The ice sheet scraped away large amounts of regolith , leaving the bedrock that serves as the geologic foundation for much of New York City today. Later on, movement of the ice sheet would contribute to the separation of what are now Long Island and Staten Island . [81]

In the precolonial era , the area of present-day New York City was inhabited by Algonquian Native Americans , including the Lenape , whose homeland, known as Lenapehoking , included Staten Island; the western portion of Long Island, including the area that would become Brooklyn and Queens; Manhattan; the Bronx; and the Lower Hudson Valley .

Medicine advances at astonishing speed, and there are both good and bad sides of that rush forward. But high-quality care, it seems safe to say, is an undisputed good.

“What frustrates me is, as providers, we’ve lost our humanness and we cease to live when we forget about the human.”

Because of how narrow a spotlight empathy casts, it makes it hard to solve the biggest, most difficult problems facing society.

New York is a state in the northeastern United States . New York was one of the original thirteen colonies that formed the United States . With an estimated 19.85 million residents in 2017, [4] it is the fourth most populous state in the United States. To differentiate from its city with the same name, it is sometimes called New York State .

The tribes in what is now New York were predominantly Iroquois and Algonquin. Long Island was divided roughly in half between the Wampanoag and Lenape . The Lenape also controlled most of the region surrounding New York Harbor . North of the Lenape was a third Algonquin nation, the Mohicans . Starting north of them, from east to west, were three Iroquoian nations: the Mohawk , the original Iroquois and the Petun . South of them, divided roughly along Appalachia , were the Susquehannock and the Erie . [32] [33] [34] [35] [36] [37]

Many of the Wampanoag and Mohican peoples were caught up in King Philip's War , a joint effort of many New England tribes to push Europeans off their land. After the death of their leader, Chief Philip Metacomet , most of those peoples fled inland, splitting into the Abenaki and the Schaghticoke . Many of the Mohicans remained in the region until the 1800s, [38] however, a small group known as the Ouabano migrated southwest into West Virginia at an earlier time. They may have merged with the Shawnee. [39] [40]
