In the past, there have been several instances where anglers with a sense of humour have brought home dead blue sharks and hammerhead sharks from ocean adventures and left them along the shoreline of the Hudson to confuse people. The tidewater Hudson is not generally conducive to the presence of large sharks for reasons of salinity and turbidity

Bull sharks are well know for their trait of going (sometimes hundreds) of miles inland in freshwater river systems. They perfer murky turbid water, and are considered by many authorities to be the most dangerous variety of shark to humans. I don't know if they would be in the Hudson river area though.

I recall there being a summer in the early 1900s where a great many sharks were swimming into the mainland through oceanic tributaries. Lots of attacks that summer - I'm not sure if it was some sort of fluke like raining frogs or what, though.

i would imagine it is possible. however nothing like a great white or anything. maybe smaller species, bull sharks and a few others.
