1: a New York river; flows southward into New York Bay; explored by Henry Hudson early in the 17th century [syn: Hudson, Hudson River]

Britannica Concise

River, New York. Originating in the Adirondack Mtns. and flowing for about 315 mi (507 km) to New York City, it was named for H. Hudson, who explored it in 1609. Dutch settlement of the Hudson Valley began in 1629. The river became a strategic waterway during the Amer. Revolution, and was the scene of many battles. Linked by canals with the Great Lakes and with the Delaware River and lower St. Lawrence River valleys, the Hudson is now a major commercial route; its S end forms the New York-New Jersey boundary.
