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
Perfect weather brought heavy recreational activity back to the North River, with motor, wind and human power vessels very much in evidence. Commercial traffic was heavy as well, particularly on Sunday. Norwegian’s Prima spent the day on the north side of Pier 88 and the USS Coooperstown remained tied up on the south side after their commissioning ceremony on Saturday which featured a 19-gun canon salute.
