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
Fleet Week officially kicks off Wednesday with the arrival of the parade of ships heading for Pier 88 and Stapleton, but there were signs of preparation already on Tuesday. The Italian frigate Virginio Fasan was tied up at Pier 90 in the morning, though they later headed back to the Harbor, presumably to join the parade in the morning. The Boston-based Coast Guard cutter Warren Deyampert, which visited just a few weeks ago, was back at the end of Pier 86 during the day as well before also heading back out in the afternoon. This year’s flattop will be amphibious assault ship LHD-1 USS Wasp, which was off the Jersey Shore as of Tuesday afternoon. Military chopper traffic was also heavy.
