Nicolaes Visscher II
2 (two; /ˈtuː/ ( listen)) is a number, numeral, and glyph. It is the natural number following 1 and preceding 3.Contents1 In mathematics1.1 List of basic calculations2 Evolution of the glyph 3 In science 4 In technology 5 In religion5.1 Judaism6 Numerological significance 7 In sports 8 In other fields 9 See also 10 References 11 External linksIn mathematics[edit] An integer is called even if it is divisible by 2. For integers written in a numeral system based on an even number, such as decimal, hexadecimal, or in any other base that is even, divisibility by 2 is easily tested by merely looking at the last digit. If it is even, then the whole number is even. In particular, when written in the decimal system, all multiples of 2 will end in 0, 2, 4, 6, or 8. Two is the smallest prime number, and the only even prime number (for this reason it is sometimes called "the oddest prime").[1] The next prime is three

New Dorp, Staten Island
New Dorp is a neighborhood in the Staten Island borough of New York City, United States. It is located in the east of Staten Island, near the foot of Todt Hill, with Grant City immediately to its north, and Oakwood bordering to the south. New Dorp Beach, bordering to the east, is often listed on maps as a separate neighborhood from Mill Road to the shore, but is generally considered to be a part of New Dorp. One of the earliest European settlements in the New York City area, New Dorp was founded by Dutch settlers from the New Netherland colony, and the name is an anglicization of Nieuw Dorp meaning "New Village" in the Dutch Language. It was historically one of the most important towns on Staten Island, becoming a part of New York City in 1898 as part of the Borough of Richmond. In the 1960s New Dorp ceased to be a distinct town during New York City's suburbanization, where rapid housing development on Staten Island saw the town added to the city conurbation
