The Lenape Native Americans inhabited the New York region when it was originally discovered in 1524 by Giovanni da Verrazzano. New York was first known as New Amsterdam when the area was first settled in the early 1600s. In 1664, the city was surrendered to the English and renamed New York after the English Duke of York and Albany. Today New York City has an estimated urban population of 5.3 million people and more than 19 million people live in the New York City metropolitan area. This photo of the mid-town area of New York City’s skyline has been selected as the Daily Cool Photo on Running Wolf’s Rant for the 7th of October 2010.
