What religion did the new york colony have?
There were a number of religions that the New York colony had. However, Protestantism was the main religion in this colony.
New York was originally a Dutch colony, and those Dutch brought their own religion with them (primarily Protestant Christianity). Eventually the British took the colony from the Dutch, and one of the first things they did was make the Church of England (now known in the US as Episcopal Church) the official religion of the colony. However, other Christian denominations were tolerated.
