New York Rare Historical Photos – Mega Series Part 1
In 1524, Giovanni da Verrazzano, an Italian explorer in the service of the French crown, explored the Atlantic coast of North America between the Carolinas and Newfoundland, including New York Harbor and Narragansett Bay.
On April 17, 1524 Verrazanno entered New York Bay, by way of the Strait now called the Narrows into the northern bay which he named Santa Margherita, in honour of the King of France’s sister.
Verrazzano described it as “a vast coastline with a deep delta in which every kind of ship could pass” and he adds: “that it extends inland for a league and opens up to form a beautiful lake. This vast sheet of water swarmed with native boats”. He landed on the tip of Manhattan and perhaps on the furthest point of Long Island. Verrazanno’s stay in this place was interrupted by a storm which pushed him north towards Martha’s Vineyard.
