Best Answer

The surface of Hudson River in the vicinity of Manhattan froze 3 times in written history, 1821, 1780 and 1720, according to I.N. Phelps Stokes's ''Iconography of Manhattan Island.''

The surface further upstream would completely freeze but for icebreaker ships that keep the waters open for commercial traffic.

It is unlikely the Hudson would ever freeze completely as it is salty near it's mouth and upwards of forty-five feet deep.

What happened to Henry Hudson after his discovery of the Hudson River?

Henry Hudson (1570?-1611) returned to the Netherlands after his exploration of Delaware Bay and the Hudson River in 1609. On his final voyage, in 1610, he sailed north past Baffin Island and discovered Hudson Bay. But his ship was trapped by ice for the winter, and his crew mutinied, taking the ship and leaving Hudson, his son, and some crewmen in a small boat. They were never seen again and almost certainly died within a few weeks in the frigid climate.
