in the early 1600s after being discovered by Henry Hudson. Looking for a faster trade route in 1609, he explored the River, later named for him, northward from Manhattan. By 1664, nearly 10,000 Dutch were settled in Fort Orange when the English captured the fort and renamed it in honor of the Duke of Albany. Though technically part of Britain's crown until the Revolution, Dutch merchants continued to influence the City, and under Dutch guidance, Albany played an important role in maintaining communication between the French, the British and the Iroquois. Albany's Annual Tulip Festival in historic Washington Park honors this Dutch heritage each spring. Thousands view nature's spectacular color show while enjoying the music, art and food of this popular event. Albany became the official capital of New York State in January 1797.
