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
Tuesday was yet another day of cold temperatures, northerly winds and soaking rains. Observed river traffic was light, with even the cruise terminal devoid of ships and dredging activity. The Pocamoke left the river with its barge and headed for new cargo, while the Haggerty Girls remained off Edgewater.
The Royal Wagenborg bulk carrier Edenborg came through loaded with wood pulp or other lumber products from Sweden, heading for Albany and, ultimately, paper mills upstate or in Pennsylvania. This is the third time this year than Edenborg has come through, along with numerous similar Royal Wagenborg freighters. Coast Guard Cutter Beluga was back on the River as well, making a relatively rare run up from its Sandy Hook base to rest at the Coast Guard mooring south of the GW Bridge.
