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
Wednesday brought another day of blazing hot temperatures, though a southerly wind built throughout the day providing some relief on the water. Commercial traffic was rather heavy mid-week, with a number of tanker barges, hoppers and a bulk carrier moving through
The former Bouchard tug Evening Mist came through with hoppers loaded with stone or gravel, arriving from the pier of a former cement plant up in Catskill, New York. We saw this tug, which is owned by Haugland Group, making the same run a few weeks back, and presumably they are using that pier to load stone. Later in the morning, after spending some time off Red Hook, the Evening Mist passed in the other direction, heading back north with empty barges.
