New York City became notable in the 18th century, when it became an important merchant pier in the New World. New York played a key role during the American Revolution, as well as during the ensuing Civil War. The Constitution of New York came into power in 1777 and it had a strong effect on the sketching out of the Constitution of the United States of America. New York was a national capital between 1785 and 1790, and the rule of law in USA was born there. Albany became the capital in 1797, while, in 1787, New York became the eleventh state to ratify the Constitution of the United States of America.

New York was the starting point of many innovations in transport during the 19th century, including the first steam boat line in 1807, the Erie Canal in 1825, as well as the first regular railway system in 1831. These innovations led to the spreading of the area New York takes up, as well as if the spreading of trade routes with the northeast settlements all the way to the Great Lakes. Thanks to the trade routes with the south, New York was home to many who sided with the south during the Civil War. Far from any battle, New York sent the most infantry and money to support the cause of the Union. After the war, the country helped accelerate the industrialization of its territory, which saw the first workers’ unions start up in New York.

The Statue of Liberty was first opened for the public in 1886, and it quickly became the symbol of New York. The city suffered several economic crises, starting from the Wall Street Crash, and ending in the bankruptcy of the 1970s. In the 20th century, New York became a media capital, hosting many national news agencies and TV-shows in general. Some of the city’s innovations became nationally and internationally acclaimed.
