How Well Do You Know New York?

One of the categories on an older Jeopardy! episode was “New York State History.”  Here are the answers; just come up with the correct question for each.  I’ll give those questions in a future post:

  1. This capital was founded as Fort Nassau in the early 1600s.
  2. In 1906 Willis Carrier of the Buffalo Forge Company patented an “apparatus for treating air,” now known as this.
  3. Said to be the USA’s oldest state park is the one encompassing this natural wonder formed about 12,000 years ago.
  4. Making his name as a prosecutor, he was elected governor in 1942, 1946 & 1950 but lost twice for president in that time.
  5. He was the governor of New Netherland before surrendering the region to the British in 1664.
