New York City was originally called New Amsterdam as the first settlers were from Holland.
The Dutch claimed the area where New York City now stands and established a colony, naming it New Amsterdam.
New Amsterdam became the largest Dutch colonial settlement in North America. During the second Anglo-Dutch War between England and the United Netherlands, the colony was surrendered to the English on 24 September 1664, and renamed New York. When the Dutch retook control briefly in 1673, they renamed it "New Orange", but ceded it permanently to England after the signing of the Treaty of Westminster in 1674.
