Manhattan


Manhattan was originally inhabited by the Lenape Indians, who called it Mannahata. The Dutch established the settlement of New Amsterdam in 1624; when the English took the territory from the Dutch in 1664, they renamed it New York. Today, Manhattan is home to more than 1.5 million people and is one of the most densely populated places in the United States.
