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
Norwegian Cruiseline’s Prima, launched last summer, arrived on the North River for the first time this year on Tuesday on a deadhead run from Port Canveral. Prima called here in October of last year and ran a few cruises from Pier 88 before heading south to Florida for the winter. She loaded passengers and headed out for a 7-day Bermuda run. Prima will make a few cruises out of New York before heading to Europe for Reykjavik-Southampton runs over the summer. Observed commercial traffic has been light so far this week.
