The Hoosic River, also known as the Hoosac, the Hoosick (primarily in New York) and the Hoosuck (mostly archaic), is a 76.3-mile-long (122.8 km) tributary of the Hudson River in the northeastern United States. The different spellings are the result of varying transliterations of the river’s original Algonquian name. It can be translated either as “the beyond place” (as in beyond, or east of, the Hudson) or as “the stony place” (perhaps because the river’s stony bottom is usually exposed except in spring, or perhaps because local soils are so stony).
