George Washington, New York
The Big Apple is surrounded by many great cities and travel destinations, and so many make trips there from New York, and rightly so. We ourselves have made several days trips from New York. Either head north to Long Island, Boston, the Hamptons, or Niagara Falls.
From the arrival of the first European settlers to the status of one of the original 13 colonies: today’s state of New York is inextricably linked with the history of the United States.
The staff of the New York Public Library cleaned up their vast and centuries-old archive. They organized an impressive free exhibition. Here will be shown exhibits covering the 400-year history, including the only surviving letter of Christopher Columbus in which he talks about his «discovery» of America, and the first Gutenberg Bible brought to the US.
