|Within Battery Park in Lower Manhattan is this statue of the Giovanni da Verrazzano, the first European explorer to venture into NY Harbor. Sailing in his ship the Dauphine on behalf of the French monarchy Verrazzano took off in 1523 in search of a passage to the Pacific Ocean and the Far East.||An interesting bit of history is how he wrote a report based on his travels to the New World. This document called the Cellere Codes (a copy of which is located within the Morgan Library in Manhattan) later served to instruct explorers such as Henry Hudson. Also note that the Verrazzano Bridge is named after Giovanni.|
