The community life of New York was further enhanced when Albany was given its own charter in 1688 by New York Gov. Thomas Dongan. Now a city, it was completely separate from the Patroon. It created a council of aldermen who controlled trade, including trade with the natives, as well as the sale of beer and operation of taverns.
