New York becomes the 11th state to join the United States of America

New York City was also served as the capital of the United States from 1785 to 1790, with two presidential mansions in Manhattan, and both the inauguration of George Washington and the first meeting of the United States Congress took place at old Federal Hall. New York and Virginia were seen as the two most influential colonies needed for the success of the United States, and New York ratified the Constitution just one day after Virginia did so.
