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
Cooler air, lower humidity but still with the same steady breeze out of the southwest made for perfect conditions on Tuesday. River traffic was fairly heavy with a lot of rock and gravel heading south. The Mako remained anchored off 72nd Street, going on four days, but perhaps her brief visit to the Upper Bay on Monday reset the clock on the Coast Guard’s 96 hour limit for the anchorage. Josephine was also anchored on the River early but headed for the Narrows in the afternoon.
