Re: Sailing the Hudson River NY

Hello...all true... I lived on the Hudson in Newburgh, went to school in Hyde park and worked in cold spring.. I used to sit in class and watch the ice flow up river with the tide.
I always thought it was tidal to Albany, but now understand that it's as far as troy..?

I gave lessons out of Jersey City for two summers, one just after Irene. The river looked like chocolate milk for 2 weeks afterward and yes..I saw parts of houses and their contents float well as whole trees.
