Re: Sailing the Hudson River NY

I think we are splitting hairs here on where the Hudson officially begins and ends. The entire Hudson up to Troy is a tidal estuary although the halocline or where the salt water reaches to, changes from year to year. Usually the salt water does not go above, say Beacon and is normally not higher than Haverstraw Bay. Salt water fish species are routinely found in the southern third of the Hudson but it is still the Hudson River, which is a tidal estuary.
NY Harbor begins at the Battery, or Liberty Landing Marina on the west.
Does the East River also begin at the Battery or the Brooklyn Bridge or Buttermilk Channel? I am not sure I care.
The East River is not a river but a tidal straight but the Hudson is a river.
