New York

Come and settle here!

Come settle in the best colony in the world.

We of New York have some of the finest history around. In the beginning, we were settled by the Dutch-- who, if you don't know, have some of the best food around-- until around 1664, when what was New Amsterdam was conquered by the British and changed to New York. The British were nice, however, and welcomed the Dutch people to remain where they were- and thus is the reason why New York is so tolerant of different religions; there are various peoples that reside there. Primarily, New York was colonized by the Dutch solely for the reason of trade; they were in a competition against big powers such as England, an believed that having a spot in the New World would be ideal.
