1766: Britain repealed the Stamp Act.
The Stamp Act Congress happened at Federal Hall in 1765. We visit Federal Hall on Financial District tours and Colonial NYC tours.
1950: CCNY beats Bradley University to win the NIT Championship at Madison Square Garden. A week later CCNY downs Bradley again to capture the NCAA title, becoming the first and only college to win both titles in the same year. But the team's feat is later tarnished by a point-shaving scandal.
