Dunkirk, New York, USA

First settled about 1805, it was known as Chadwick’s Bay but was renamed because of the supposed similarity of its harbour to that of Dunkirk (Dunkerque), France. The opening of the Erie Canal (1825) and the arrival of the Erie Railroad (1851; now part of the Consolidated Rail Corporation) stimulated Dunkirk’s growth. It developed commercial fishing, shipped agricultural products (particularly Concord grapes), and acquired diversified industry (now chiefly stainless steel).
