New York IS (was) New Netherland. The Dutch were the first Europeans to settle the New York area. When they settled the area that is now New York City, they named it "New Amsterdam." They named the surrounding area, "New Netherland." New Netherland included land in what is now New York State, New Jersey, Connecticut and Delaware.

New Amsterdam (now New York City) was the capital of the the greater province of New Netherland.

It depends on what you term as successful, but I would say the Mormons, since they went into a more hostile environment and made a huge city that is still major today.

New York didn't exist in 1624. It was called the New Netherland an was filled with people seeking a better life. There were a lot of unskilled workers that settled for very low wages and the town had far more men than women.

i would say personally netherland dwarf- if your looking for an easy rabbit to tame then choose dwarf lop because it is a lot of hard work to tame a netherland dwarf . Netherland dwarfs though are very pretty more pretty then dwarf lops. Netherland dwarfs are able to look after themselves and make sure that they dont get flystrike. Netherland dwarfs are very shy and a bit aggressive. I dont know much about dwarfs lops though sorry but i would suggest you look at a RSPB rabbit book.

This is more of an opinion question. I would say that Joe Torre was most successful as a manager, because he led them to the postseason for 12 straight years, winning 4 World Series and 6 AL Pennants. Managers Joe McCarthy and Casey Stengel have each won 7 World Series for the Yankees.
