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
Saturday brought extremely pleasant conditions, with temperatures holding in the 60s and 70s and light winds continuing out of the north. River traffic was moderate and fairly typical, while sail boats, kayaks, paddle boards, outrigged canoes and even escorted swimmers were out in force.
