The Hudson River flows generally southward approximately 315 miles from its source at Lake Tear-of-the-Clouds on Mount Marcy in the Adirondack Mountains to the Battery in New York City. The Hudson River valley is rich with history. The initial exposure of many schoolchildren to stories of the Hudson is to tales of the Dutch explorer Henry Hudson's voyage in search of the Northeast Passage to the Orient in 1609. In fact, the valley has been populated since prehistoric times, and Europeans started moving into the Hudson valley from the Middle Hudson and Susquehanna River valleys and south from the St. Lawrence as early as about 1525.
