The Hudson River is a North American river.

Description

The Hudson River flows from the Adirondack Mountains of Upstate New York, through New York and New Jersey states to a drain in the Atlantic Ocean. It serves as the political boundary between New Jersey and New York and is also the central water-body of the Hudson River Valley. The river originally had the Iroquois name of the Ca-ho-ha-ta-te-a ("The river") from when it was predominately inhabited by the Mohican tribe though the Lenape tribe would also give it the name of 'Muhheakantuck'.
