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
Warm weather persisted through the end of the work week, but Friday brought periods of heavy rain and cooling temperatures. North River anchorages were busy Friday morning as a blanket of fog sat over the region.
Reinauer’s Josephine remained anchored in the River with her loaded barge, shifting up north closer to the Bridge. By late morning Friday, however, Josephine was heading for the NuStar terminal in Linden, the same destination we have seen other loaded barges anchoring in the River heading for this year, and there does seem to be some connection between that facility and the shift towards tugs more frequently anchoring in the North River with loaded barges.
More typical traffic late in the week was mainly tugs with light barges returning after making early week deliveries up north
