HISTORY /  
In the precolonial era, the area of present day New York City was inhabited by Algonquian tribes of Native Americans, including the Lenape, whose homeland, known as Lenapehoking, included Staten Island, the western portion of Long Island (including the area that would become Brooklyn and Queens), Manhattan, and the Lower Hudson Valley, including The Bronx.  The first documented visit by a European was in 1524 by a Florentine explorer in service of the French crown, who sailed into New York Harbor. He claimed the area for France and named it New Angoulême. A year later, a Portuguese sailing for Holy Roman Emperor Charles V, entered New York Harbor and charted the mouth of the Hudson river which he named Rio de San Antonio.  In 1609, English explorer Henry Hudson re-discovered the region when he sailed his ship the "Half Moon" into New York Harbor while searching for the Northwest Passage to the Orient, for his employer, the Dutch East India Company. He proceeded to sail up what is now known as the Hudson River.
