Daily observations on the Hudson River as it passes through New York City. The section of the Hudson which passes through New York is historically known as the North River, called this by the Dutch to distinguish it from the Delaware River, which they knew as the South River. This stretch of the Hudson is still often referred to as the North River by local mariners today. All photos by Daniel Katzive unless otherwise attributed. Twitter @dannykatman
Winds whipped out of the northwest all day Sunday, with gusts above 20 knots keeping sailors and most other recreational activity off the river. Commercial activity was not deterred by the wind though, with a flood of northbound traffic coming through once the morning ebb tide ended. Coeymans Marine Towing’s Helen, the former Vane Brothers Charles Burton, came south pushing a load of rocks from Coeymans, less than 18 hours after she passed in the other direction pushing a load of sand north.
