The city of Yonkers, New York originated when a grant was given to young Adriaen Van der Donck by the Dutch East India Company in the 1640s. The land was called "Jonk Herr's" land, after the Dtch word for "young gentleman" or "young nobleman." Jonk Herr's became Yonkers with time and the land became part of Phillipsburg Manor. Yonkers was a mecca for carpet and hat manufacturing with the coming of the Industrial Revolution in the 19th century. Yonkers' other claims to fame include being the location of the first golf game in the United States in 1888 and the first FM raido broadcasting in 1912 by Edwin Armstrong.
