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 first full work week of December kicked off with clear skies, light winds and seasonable temperatures. The week brought two visitors to the passenger ship terminal area, with the Woods Hole-based 110’ Coast Guard cutter Tybee tieing up at the end of Pier 86 Monday morning for a one-day port call, and a brand new MSC cruise ship, the Seascape, docking at Pier 88. The Seascape was recently launched in Italy, loaded passengers in Barcelona and arrived at Pier 88 just before 6am. According to Cruise Industry News, there will be a naming ceremony on Wednesday in New York before Seascape heads for its new home port of Miami.
