The Half Moon

DS_20090807HalfMoon

If you have ever traveled along then Hudson River in New York, particularly via Metro North Railroad which rides along the river, you may have witnessed an odd looking ship that seems out of place among all the tug boats and tankers that crowd the waters. That vessel may have been the Half Moon, a replica of the ship that Henry Hudson captained up the river that would later bear his name. The crew of the Half Moon took part in the Hudson-Fulton celebration in June, commemorating the 400th anniversary of Hudson’s voyage. The drawing is from the festivities as the ship pulled into port in Newburgh, NY.—Dominick
