Best Answer

They fished whales and fish.

They traded with the Indians, built ships, farmed grain, rice, and wheat and manufactured iron goods.

farming. New York's fertile soil, long growing season, and warm summers made it an easy choice to earn profit by farming cash crops and raising and selling livestock. If one did not choose to be a farmer, they often went into the business, trade with Britain, shopkeeping, blacksmith, or carpentry, slave trade, forestry,

While not many people realize it, New York center was a big center for the trade, selling, and buying of enslaved Africans for many of the British colonies would sell fish at the fish market. most people would be fisherman.
