New York City, New York

The name Manhattan derives from the word Manna-hata, as written in the 1609 logbook of Robert Juet, an officer on Henry Hudson's yacht Halve Maen (Half Moon). A 1610 map depicts the name Manahata twice, on both the west and east sides of the Mauritius River (later named the Hudson River). The word "Manhattan" has been translated as "island of many hills" from the Lenape language. The Lenape Indians themselves gave a slightly different, inaccurate account of the name to Moravian missionary John Heckewelder. They called it Manahachtanienk, which in the Delaware language, means "the island where we all became intoxicated."

This trip to New York, New York was taken during the first week in June 2005.
