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
We continue to count off the weeks of winter, with sunset after 5pm finally arriving. Weather has remained unseasonably warm, though Thursday brought more rain limiting scope for recreation on the water. River traffic has been fairly typical, with a few exceptions noted below. Thursday also brought Cunard’s Queen Victoria to Pier 90, a rare visit as Cunard usually uses the Brooklyn cruise terminal these days. Victoria is on the first leg of an around the world cruise, having departed Southampton last week. Tanker traffic was Reinauer-heavy.
