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
Lovely fall weather was interrupted by a stormy Thursday, but conditions improved dramatically again at the end of the week. River traffic seemed light, and a couple of tugs anchored in the River Thursday after a period of empty anchorages. Cruise terminal activity was sporadic, and the dredgers appear to have moved on, with the Delaware Bay tied up at a dock in Newark now.
