    America was named after Amerigo Vespucci, an Italian navigator and explorer. German cartographer Martin Waldseemüler, while working on creating world map for a geography book in 1507, used 'America' (the feminized version of the Latin name of Amerigo Vespucci, Americus Vespucius) for the 'New World' (present combined continents of the North and South Americas), after Amerigo Vespucci. Vespucci theorized, correctly, that Christopher Columbus, on reaching islands in the Caribbean Sea in 1492, had come not to India but to a " New World". On the contrary, Christopher Columbus died believing that he discovered a new route to India

    Following his April 1789 inauguration, President George Washington occupied two executive mansions in New York City, the then capital of United States - the Samuel Osgood House at 3 Cherry Street (April 1789 – February 1790), and the Alexander Macomb House at 39–41 Broadway (February–August 1790). In May 1790, New York began construction of Government House for his official residence, but he never occupied it. The national capital moved to Philadelphia in December 1790. The July 1790 Residence Act named Philadelphia, Pennsylvania the temporary national capital for a 10-year period while the Washington DC was under construction. The City of Philadelphia rented Robert Morris's city house at 190 High Street (now 524-30 Market Street) for Washington's presidential residence. The first president occupied the Market Street mansion from November 1790 to March 1797. As part of a futile effort to have Philadelphia named the permanent national capital, Pennsylvania built a much grander presidential mansion several blocks away, but Washington declined to occupy it.
