荷蘭人是移居紐約的第一批殖民。1624年時,他們在阿爾班尼(Albany)的附近建立了奧倫治城(Fort Orange)隔年,又在曼哈頓島(island of Manhattan)上建立了新阿姆斯特丹 (New Amsterdam) 1660年代,英國接掌了此一地區,並以約克公爵之名,將此殖民地更名為紐約;紐約為聯邦成立時,最初的13州之一(其於1788年加入),又名「帝國之州」(Empire State)。它包容萬象,從曼哈頓島上的摩天高樓到紐約州北部的河川、山脈及湖泊,各式景象,應有盡有。今日紐約的人口為全美第三(僅次於加州及德州),而且一直是美國的金融中心。紐約州的州花是玫瑰,首都是奧爾班尼。


The Dutch were the first settlers in New York, establishing Fort Orange near Albany in 1624 and New Amsterdam on the island of Manhattan a year later. After the English took over in the 1660s, the colony was renamed New York, after the Duke of York. One of the original 13 states to join the Union (it entered in 1788), New York is known as the "Empire State." The state includes everything from skyscrapers in Manhattan to rivers, mountains, and lakes in upstate New York. Today, New York has the third largest population (after California and Texas), and remains the financial center of the country. The state flower is the rose, and the capital is Albany.
