a river three miles wide

The section of the Hudson River below Stony Point is a most scenic region in which to have been raised up. Here are some paintings and photos of this area, the Haverstraw Bay and Tappan Zee. I've shown others in earlier posts. Note the arrows and numbers on the following map. The arrows indicate the point of view of the painter or photographer The numbers are keyed to descriptions that appear below. The map is a detail from a book published in 1907. The sources of paintings and photos are indicated in their captions. As usual, you may click any image to view it full size.
