荷兰人是移居纽约的第一批殖民。1624年时,他们在阿尔班尼(Albany)的附近创建了奥伦治城(Fort Orange)隔年,又在曼哈顿岛(island of Manhattan)上创建了新阿姆斯特丹 (New Amsterdam) 1660年代,英国接掌了此一地区,并以约克公爵之名,将此殖民地更名为纽约;纽约为联邦成立时,最初的13州之一(其于1788年添加),又名「帝国之州」(Empire State)。它包容万象,从曼哈顿岛上的摩天高楼到纽约州北部的河川、山脉及湖泊,各式景象,应有尽有。今日纽约的人口为全美第三(仅次于加州及德州),而且一直是美国的金融中心。纽约州的州花是玫瑰,首都是奥尔班尼。


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.
