I assume that NY Harbour, and the southern portion of the Hudson are salt water. Parts of the Hudson are an estuary.

The open Atlantic oceanfront exists right under this bridge.

Mostly salty. The harbor is a confluence of tidal estuaries.

you look good in your photo (#1120). well, it's high time to know even it's a bit unrecognizable who's doing all these beautiful shots.
thanks again for your grand effort.
