Holland (The Netherlands). The Dutch were the first Europeans to settle New York City, in about 1624. When the English took control in 1664, they renamed it New York.

It was easy for England to take over New Amsterdam because the settlers of New Amsterdam were so mad at Stuyvesant, the governor of New Netherland, that they refused to fight.

The English word retrospective means to take a look at a specific event or events. Derived from the Latin retrospectare, meaning look back, the earliest use of the word is 1664.

The English showed up with a small fleet and demanded the city surrender. Since the colony had very little military resources, it did surrender. Thus New Netherland became New York, named after the Duke of York, who was the King's brother (and he eventually became king himself, as James II). A few years later, when the English and Dutch were at war again, the Dutch were able to occupy New York for a while- but the Dutch eventually lost the war and were forced to give it back to England. It then remained an English colony until the American Revolution.

New York has/had a natural harbor that can be used in shipping. When the primary transportation for supplies, men, and goods is by ship a natural harbor is very valuable to have for a colony/area. The Hudson River can also be used from New York as a "highway" inland.
