I took this photo in Half Moon, New York just as the sun was coming up. Half Moon is a town on the Hudson River, just north of the Albany-Troy area. It takes it name from Henry Hudson’s ship, Halve Maen according to a history of the town that I read on the back of a local restaurant.
However, according to Wikipedia, the town gets it name from the crescent shape of the land where the Mohawk and Hudson river join. Hmmm….Which is correct?
