Up until development of modern highways in the 20th century, the Hudson was a major north-south transportation corridor.

  • Dutch fur traders and settlers used the river between Ft. Orange (Albany) and New Amsterdam (NYC)

  • Hundreds of thousands of people and tons of freight floated on the river to and from the Erie Canal’s eastern end.

Even today, there is much barge traffic for cement, petroleum, and other goods. The river is also important for pleasure boating during the warmer months.

  • Images of the former bustle on the river can still be found in many books.

  • A selected bibliography is provided in the Resources section accompanying this Workshop.
