New York City, NY, one of the most populous metropolitian areas in the world, is located on the Atlantic coast of northeastern United States.

In 1624 Dutch settlers established a trading post on a large natural harbor that they named New Amsterdam after their European capital in the Netherlands. The name was changed by the British who took control in 1664.

The largest battle of the Revolutionary War was fought at New York, and New York served as an early capital of the new United States.

• “New York is the perfect model of a city, not the model of a perfect city.” ~ Lewis Mumford

Nuremberg, in the German state of Bavaria, was probably founded at the turn of the 11th century. Because of its location it became an important trading city and was an ‘unofficial capital’ of the Holy Roman Empire (Diets of Nuremberg).

Prior to World War II the Nazis also held huge propaganda rallies in Nuremberg which lead to the international tribunal of the German officials involved in the Holocaust and war crimes to be held in the same city.

Famous people associated with Nuremberg: Albrecht Durer, Ludwig Feuerbach, Kaspar Hauser, Johann Pachelbel, Johann Christoph Volkamer.
