哈得逊河,在莫罕坎印第安语中,称为Muhheakunnuk, (意指伟大的不断变动的水) ,是美国革命的兵家必争之地。它也是重要的地形美化区域之一,称为哈得逊河学校,盛赞美国的自然地形之美。今天,哈得逊河已经是这个国家的重要水路之一,航行船只一年四季都能行驶到奥尔巴尼;休闲船只、拖船、游艇,从五月到十一月可以由此航行到五大湖。货物像是木材、果肉、钢铁、可可豆、谷物、小型物质等,全都仰赖哈得逊河运送。美国的军事学校西点军校,也是在哈得逊阅兵。如果哈得逊看到哈得逊河今日的模样,会做何感想呢?

The Hudson River, once known to the Mohican Indians as Muhheakunnuk ("Great Waters Constantly in Motion"), was the site of key battles in the American Revolution. It also inspired an important phase of landscape painting called the Hudson River school that celebrated the natural beauty of the American landscape. Today, the Hudson is one of the nation's most important waterways. Oceangoing ships can navigate the river to Albany year-round. Pleasure boats and tugboat and barge traffic can reach the Great Lakes from May to November. Cargo such as wood pulp, steel, cocoa beans, grain, and scrap metal rely on the Hudson for deliveries. The U.S. Military Academy at West Point overlooks the Hudson too. What would Henry Hudson say if he saw that river today?
