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
The final days of August and first days of September brought a bit of a lull in activity, both on land and on the River. Most of the commercial traffic has been moving stone rather than fuels, though the cruise terminal has been quite busy, which is good for Centerline Logistics’ bunkering business.
On Saturday morning, an outrigged-canoe got wedged in the pilings of Pier i by the ebb tide. A rower from one of the other canoes swam over to join them, but it took about 40 minutes of hard work to get free. A launch from their club appeared to arrive on the scene but only after they were off.
