Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The Hudson River is a massive and fast moving body of water. Lots to do and see along all sides of the river. They enliven successfully landed a plane on the river!

Ah.... The Hudson River! Enjoy it your way, but go and do it! Like to walk or jog? There's the "walk over the Hudson" located in Highland, New York (atop a restructured railroad bridge), that also gets you a bonus breeze of fresh air 100's f feet above the river. Preferer a walk in the shade? Head over to the Nyack Beach Walkway, great to take a lovely stroll or easy hike at the river bed. Not interested in walking? Perhaps a drive on the new Tappan Zee bridge may do the job...…

Almost anywhere in New York City you can enjoy for a wonderful view. Summer is one of the best seasons to sit on the shore and go away from the noise of the big city.

There is a wonderful viewing platform in the park showing the construction of the new Tappen Zee Bridge. Easy access with several informational panels, including a spotter's guide for construction equipment and vessels and viewing scopes for close up views.

You can also find a webcam for daily progress at NewNYBridge.com

Magical engineering.

I visited the Hudson River this Saturday - it is 315 miles from the Adirondack mountains to the Atlantic Ocean - so I didn't get to see all of it. The views from the west side of Manhattan are beautiful and I have been on three boat rides this year - simply stunning!

We walked along the Hudson today from near the ground zero site up to near Greenwich village. It was a beautiful day and lovely and quiet along the river. Really recommend for a short break from the city centre
