This Day in History Entry #51

February 2nd, 2010 by Wordsman

Nowadays the city has it all
The U.N. and the New Year’s dropped ball
Long before Son of Sam
It was New Amsterdam
And old Wall Street was just that: a wall

Event: The City of New York (then New Amsterdam) is formally incorporated
Year: 1653
