New York is the third largest state in terms of population, and the second largest in size of economy and industrial output. New York was settled by the Algonquin and Iroquois peoples prior to the establishment of the first European colony, New Amsterdam, founded by the Dutch in 1624 on Manhattan Island. The British took control of the region in 1667 and renamed it New York.
