In November, an Instagram site called “bestofmy” singled out a photo she took of the sun setting behind the Verrazano Bridge.
Verrazano stayed here some fifteen days, pleasantly entertained by the natives, and finding them always friendly and trustful.
Fires were blazing all along the coast as far as the eye could reach, and Verrazano knew by that that the country was inhabited.
But Verrazano landed in spite of the opposition of the Indians, and went several miles into the country.
The coast names north of Florida seem to have been obtained from the Verrazano sources of 1524.
The account of Verrazano's voyage mentions his Indian trade.
A few years after the death of Verrazano they sent out another expedition, in charge of Cartier (car-ty).
