The site on the Hudson is a pretty good one – where the river narrows after the broad reach of Haverstraw Bay to the south. In fact, the British built a fort there, which was stormed in 1779 in a surprise attack by cunning Americans using the fact that said bay was only two feet deep at low tide.

But no Vikings.

Current thought suggests that Vinland proper was the coast of New Brunswick which, in the Medieval Warm Period, featured wild grapes and wheat, and a lot of potentially unwelcoming native persons.
