As Others See Us: From Hudson To Herring

Tarrytown native Paula De Angelis grew up on the Hudson but now finds a different river near her home. A scientific writer and consultant who has worked in the United States and in Norway for 30 years, Dr. De Angelis muses about Oslo’s Akerselva River in her blog and how it compares to the Hudson.

“Both are beautiful rivers that wind their way through city, town and countryside alike. The Hudson River, over 300 miles long, starts in upstate New York at Lake Tear of the Clouds in the Adirondack Mountains and ends in the Upper New York Bay, which is the New York harbor area between New York City and New Jersey,” she says. “The Akerselva river flows through the city of Oslo, having started its journey at Maridalsvannet in the forest area north of Oslo. It empties into the Oslo fjord.”
