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
Mid-week brought more beautiful weather, with temperatures rising from the 50s into the high 60s. Winds remained above 10 knots, but rotated a bit up to the northwest. Tanker barge traffic was lighter after Tuesday’s crush, with mostly empty barges coming south. Some light tugs were seen heading upriver, most likely on their way to docking assist jobs in Westchester.
Meanwhile, the cruise ship Norwegian Getaway remained docked at Pier 88, an unusually long stay after departing Tuesday and turning around in the Upper Bay and coming right back. According to an article in Cruisehive, Getaway’s planned cruise from Cape Canaveral to the Caribbean was cancelled due to the hurricane and she is waiting out the storm up here before heading south, having completed her summer cruising season up north now.
