River Summary: The Hudson River is a 315-mile-long river that flows from the Adirondack Mountains in upstate New York to the Atlantic Ocean. The river played a significant role in the growth of New York City and the United States. The Hudson River Valley was a major center of trade, agriculture, and industry in the 19th and 20th centuries. The river also has a complex hydrology system that includes several reservoirs and dams, such as the Ashokan Reservoir and the New Croton Dam, which provide drinking water and hydroelectric power to the New York City area. The Hudson River also supports several recreational activities, such as fishing, boating, and swimming, and is home to a variety of fish species, including striped bass, sturgeon, and shad. Additionally, many farmers in the Hudson River Valley use the river to irrigate their crops.
