DigitalHudson shines a spotlight on the Hudson River, one of America’s natural national treasures. The force that empowered New York City’s ascendancy to global metropolis, the Hudson River has been home to a range of people, technologies, flora, and fauna over the past four centuries. This archive showcases a vast array of materials from the river’s long cultural history: artistic renderings and written accounts are put in conversation with economic and scientific records. Visually-rich artifacts like paintings, scientific reports, and maps housed on DigitalHudson animate the river’s past and present place in American and world history.
