  • "In his 1524 voyage, Verrazzano turned north, following an endless coastline from Cape Fear in present-day North Carolina. ... He sailed up the coast, found New York Harbor, Narragansett Bay, and an arm-shaped hook of land, which he named Pallavisino after an Italian general."

    —Mark Kurlansky, Cod: A Biography of the Fish That Changed the World (New York: Penguin, 1997), 64
