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
Skies cleared Saturday and temperatures slowly climbed back above 40 amid bright sunshine. A bulker came through in the morning, heading out to sea after delivering a cargo of gypsum from Garrucha, Spain to the wallboard plant in Buchanan, NY. At sunset, another bulk ship came through heading north for Coeymans with unknown cargo, or perhaps light heading to pick up scrap.
Traffic was otherwise typical, but two of the regular tugs operating on the River seemed to be out of service and had substitutes working.
