Delaware River

A river rising in the Catskill Mountains of southeast New York and flowing about 580 km (360 mi) generally southward along the New York-Pennsylvania border and the Pennsylvania-New Jersey border to northern Delaware, where it enters Delaware Bay. The Dutch explorers named it the South River to distinguish it from the North River, an estuary of the Hudson River.
