This year marks the 400th anniversary of Henry Hudson’s historic voyage up the inspiring river that now bears his name.
In the fall of 1609, Henry Hudson and his ship, the Half Moon, along with a crew of 20 English and Dutch sailors explored the Hudson River from New York harbor up to what is now Albany, NY.
To mark this significant anniversary, cities and villages along the Hudson River are celebrating with a series of exciting events and activities throughout the entire year.
Here is a highlight of some upcoming events:
