Does the Harlem River actually FLOW? If so, which way? The text makes it sound like it goes from the East TO the Hudson, but that seems unlikely. If anything, wouldn't it carry a little bit of the Hudson's volume eastward? In any event, please clarify. Spark240 (talk) 21:38, 5 September 2008 (UTC)
It says "tidal" thus both ways. Do we need a link that will explain that word? Jim.henderson (talk) 20:32, 11 September 2008 (UTC)
The Harlem River goes either way, depending on the tides. But yes, I consider this to be quite an oddity that this "river" flows both ways, hence some explanation would be good. The picture at the straits article is quite self-explanatory. But why are the levels of the two connecting waters different depending on the tides? The ocean is so close! So instead of just a link, it could be nice to explain the tidal levels for this particular case. 126.96.36.199 (talk) 13:56, 3 August 2009 (UTC)
Well, yes, it's part of the tidal system of New York Harbor, which article doesn't even mention the word "tide". And this system is one of the more complex among world harbors, approximatly as complex as those of San Francisco or Basra or Calcutta. I, alas, lack the expertise to do more than vaguely appreciate the complexity. Jim.henderson (talk) 03:32, 6 August 2009 (UTC)
The image/map on this page cannot be understood by the one in twelve white males who suffer from red-green color blindness. Please can someone with color sight update this image so I can see it? Perhaps a map/drawing might be easier to distinguish than a satellite photo. Thanks. Andrew Oakley (talk) 11:32, 18 November 2008 (UTC)
I guess I have Deuteranopia and cannot see the Harlem River! —Preceding unsigned comment added by 188.8.131.52 (talk) 02:38, 15 May 2009 (UTC)
