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
Sunday brought near perfect conditions, with steady 10 knot breezes from the southwest making for excellent sailing. The cruise terminal was hopping, with three boats at the docks and dredging continuing in between. The tug Sarah Dann joined the dredging operations, having just arrived in New York Harbor this past week escorting the newest Staten Island Ferry to join the fleet (see the tugster blog article for photos).
