纽约的哈得逊河及纽泽西因何得名?160993日,一个起雾的清晨,亨利哈得逊和他的船员们,驾着半月号,从大西洋海岸航向河流。强风及暴风雨,迫使他们放弃当初声称要往东北探险的航程。与其一无所获回到荷兰,完全不被报导,船员投票决定,往西北另寻传说中的水路,可以连结大西洋和太平洋。他们经过今日名为曼哈顿的岛屿,进入河道。


How did the Hudson River in New York and New Jersey get its name?

Strong head winds and storms forced them to abandon the northeast voyage they had been assigned.

They passed by the island we know today as Manhattan and sailed up the river.
