  • New York City is a city in the southern end of the state of New York, and is the most populous city in the United States of America. New York City is a global economic center, with its business, finance, trading, law, and media organizations influential worldwide. The city is also an important cultural center, with many museums, galleries, and performance venues. Home of the United Nations, the city is a hub for international diplomacy. With over 8.2 million residents within an area of 322 square miles (830 km²), New York City has the highest population density of major cities in the United States. The New York metropolitan area, with a population of 18.8 million, ranks among the largest urban areas in the world.
  • The official Flag of the City of New York is designed to bear the same colors (orange, white, and blue) as the flag of the United Netherlands used in 1625, the year New Amsterdam was settled on the island of Manhattan. Located in the center is a blue print of the official Seal of New York City.
  • The Seal of the City of New York, adopted in an earlier form in 1686, bears the legend SIGILLUM CIVITATIS NOVI EBORACI which means simply "The Seal of the City of New York": Eboracum was the Roman name for York, the titular seat of James II as Duke of York. The symbols in the seal are interpreted as follows:
    • Eagle - the symbol of New York State.
    • Indian - represents the Native Americans who preceded the Europeans.
    • Sailor - represents the settlement of the area.
    • Beaver - represents the Dutch West India Company, the first company in the city.
    • Windmill, Barrel and Flower - represent early industry.
    • 1625 - the year in which Manhattan Island was established by the Dutch.
  • The region was inhabited by the Lenape Native Americans at the time of its European discovery in 1524 by Giovanni da Verrazzano, an Italian explorer in the service of the French crown, who called it "Nouvelle Angoulême".
  • Giovanni da Verrazzano was he first known European navigator to enter New York Harbor where the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge is named in his honor, and Narragansett Bay, where the Jamestown-Verrazano Bridge is located.
  • European settlement began with the founding of a Dutch fur trading settlement, later called "New Amsterdam," on the southern tip of Manhattan in 1614.
  • Dutch colonial Director-General Peter Minuit purchased the island of Manhattan from the Canarsie Native Americans in 1626 (legend, now disproved).
  • In 1664, the British conquered the city and renamed it "New York" after the English Duke of York and Albany.

Hudson River

The Hudson River, called Muh-he-kun-ne-tuk in Mahican is a river that runs through the eastern portion of New York State and, along its southern terminus, demarcates the border between the states of New York and New Jersey. It is named for Henry Hudson, an Englishman sailing for the Netherlands, who explored it in 1609. Early European settlement of the area clustered around the river. The area inspired the Hudson River school of painting, a sort of early American pastoral idyll.

East River

The East River is a tidal strait in New York City. It connects Upper New York Bay on its south end to Long Island Sound on its north end. It separates Long Island from the island of Manhattan and the Bronx on the North American mainland. The river is spanned by thirteen tunnels.

The river is spanned by eight bridges:

  • Throgs Neck Bridge
  • Bronx-Whitestone Bridge
  • Rikers Island Bridge
  • Hell Gate Bridge
  • Triborough Bridge
  • Roosevelt Island Bridge

The copper-clad statue, dedicated on October 28, 1886, commemorates the centennial of the United States and is a gesture of friendship from France to America.
  • The statue shows a woman standing upright, dressed in a robe and a seven point spiked crown representing the seven seas and continents, holding a stone tablet close to her body in her left hand and a flaming torch high in her right hand. The statue is 46.5 m tall, with the foundation adding another 46.9 m. The tablet contains the text "JULY IV MDCCLXXVI" (July 4, 1776) commemorating the date of the United States Declaration of Independence.

Скачала, уже использовала на уроке, если говорить о детях, что им презентация понравилась - ритм быстрый, но достаточно четно произносятся слова, да и факты действительной интересные, о некоторых и сама не знала. Единственный момент, кажется что презентация немного затянута в начале - историю и символы можно и меньше сделать по времени
