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 Coast Guard will be the “featured service” at Friday’s New York City Veterans Day. In recognition of this, USCG organized a small parade of ships, entering the Harbor this morning and proceeding up to the passenger ship terminal. The flagship was the Cape May-based 154’ fast response cutter Lawrence Lawson, which docked at the end of Pier 86, the Intrepid Museum pier. The Navy also participated though, with the much larger Amphibious Transport Dock USS Arlington docking on the south side of Pier 88. Local icebreaking tug Penobscot Bay rounded out the parade, and the FDNY’s Three Forty Three boat also joined in. The Coast Guard will host a search-and-rescue demonstration with a Jayhawk helicopter at Pier 86 Thursday.
Meanwhile, commercial life on the River went on as usual. The morning began with three tanker barges anchored with tugs in the river. But Adeline Marie and Kristin Poling left before the Navy arrived, leaving only Lincoln Sea with her very large barge anchored south of the bridge. Kimberly Poling came through with a cargo headed for Albany.
