In 1901, President William McKinley was assassinated in Buffalo, New York. He was shot by an anarchist named Leon Czolgosz while attending the Pan-American Exposition.
New York County, also known as Manhattan, has a rich and diverse history that dates back centuries. The area was first inhabited by the Lenape Native American tribe before becoming a Dutch settlement called New Amsterdam in the early 17th century. In 1664, the British seized control of the area and renamed it New York after the Duke of York. Throughout the colonial era, New York grew in importance as a major trading hub.

Following the American Revolution, New York County flourished as the country expanded westward. It became a magnet for immigrants from around the world, with the iconic Statue of Liberty serving as a symbol of hope for those seeking a better life in America. The county saw rapid urbanization and the construction of skyscrapers, giving birth to the modern city we know today.

In the 20th century, New York County became the cultural, financial, and political center of the United States. The Harlem Renaissance in the 1920s brought a wave of African American art, music, and literature, showcasing the county's diversity. The Great Depression had a significant impact on the area, but it rebounded during World War II with a booming economy.

In recent years, New York County has continued to thrive as a global economic hub and a cultural melting pot. It has faced various challenges, such as the September 11 terrorist attacks in 2001 and the ongoing issues of income inequality and gentrification. However, New York County remains an iconic and vibrant destination, attracting millions of visitors each year and serving as a symbol of the American dream.
