Footnotes

  1. ^ Geneva is located within both the counties of Ontario and Seneca, although the section in Seneca County has no population and is all water.[3]
  2. ^ 1653 is the officially recognized date.[4] Peter Stuyvesant convinced the States General of the Netherlands to charter the city of Nieuw Amsterdam in 1653.[5] The English envoy, Richard Nicolls, renamed the city "New York" two days after capturing it in 1664.[6] Provincial governor Thomas Dongan rechartered the city under the auspices of the Duke of York in 1683,[7] though the charter was not published until 1686.[8] Finally, New York was reincorporated to include all five of its present boroughs in 1898.
