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
Activity on the River was unsurprisingly subdued over Thanksgiving, but Friday seemed to bring a wave of catch up traffic. Three tug/barge combinations were anchored in the River at sunrise on Thanksgiving, but by afternoon the Kimberly Poling had pulled up her hook and headed for Raritan Bay for the overnight. Adeline Marie made an early Friday departure for the Upper Bay, but then came back and reanchored, still with her light barge. Cape Lookout was back at work though, leaving Friday morning and heading for the Phillips Bayway terminal on the Arthur Kill. Saint Emilion and Copper Mountain seemed to have exchanged a barge Friday morning off Yonkers.
