Map of Hudson River

& Hudson River Railroad

Back

The Hudson river proper rises by two branches, in the mountainous regions of Hamilton and Essex counties, New York.  The eastern branch is composed of two streams, which unite in Warren county.  15 miles below this, the Sacandagua unites with the Hudson at Jessup's falls; 18 miles below this, it passes Hadley's falls; and 20 further is Glen's falls.  The only considerable tributary below this, is the Mohawk, ten miles above Albany.  Its whole course, from its source to its entrance into New York bay, is 320 miles.  The tide flows as far as Albany.  The city of New York owes much of its prosperity to this river, connected as it is with the Erie and Champlain canals.  The Hudson River railroad, which connects Albany with New York, together with the river travel, are greater thoroughfares than any other highway on this continent.  (**note the railroad runs along the east bank of the Hudson river)
