The Greatest Real Estate Investment Ever Made

In "Across This Land: A Regional Geography of the United States and Canada," a book I'm reading for my geography course, I learned about the greatest real estate investment in history, or at least the greatest one that I've ever heard of.

"...In one of the best-known real estate transactions ever made, Peter Minuit purchased Manhattan Island from its native inhabitants for the reputed sum of twenty-four dollars in 1624."
