Hotel Reservations and Budget Accommodation
Alexander Hamilton was a leader in the movement which ended in the
development of the Federal Constitution, and he was active in its
ratification. New York City became the first capital of the new nation,
where President George Washington was inaugurated on April 30, 1789.
In following years, New York's economic and industrial growth made
appropriate the title "The Empire State," an expression possibly originated
by George Washington in 1784. In 1809, Robert Fulton's "North River
Steamboat," the first successful steam-propelled vessel, began a new
era in transportation.
The Erie Canal, completed in 1825, greatly enhanced the importance
of the port of New York and caused populous towns and cities to spring
up across the state. The Erie Canal was replaced by the Barge Canal
in 1918; and the system of waterways was further expanded by the construction
of the St. Lawrence Seaway.
Overland transportation grew rapidly from a system of turnpikes established
in the early 1880s to the modern day Goveror Thomas E. Dewey New York
State Thruway. By 1853, railroads, that had started as short lines
in 1831, crossed the state in systems like the Erie and New York Central.
