Largest city in the United States. Established by the Dutch West India Company in 1624 as New Amsterdam on an island known to the indigenous Lenape inhabitants as Mannahatta. Renamed New York under British rule in 1664. Capital of the United States from 1785 to 1790. Historically, New York City encompassed only Manhattan Island (New York County), and records referring to New York City in the 18th and 19th centuries refer only to Manhattan locations. The city was consolidated with Brooklyn, Bronx, Queens, and Staten Island in 1898.
