Coeymans Creek[1] is a 7.3-mile-long (11.7 km)[2] tributary of the Hudson River in Albany County, New York in the United States.

The creek originates as the continuation of Onesquethaw Creek,[3] which starts near Clarksville, in the Helderberg Mountains.


O-nis'-ke-thau Creek is also called Coeymans Creek. There was a hamlet of this name in New Scotland as well as Oniskethau flats and mountain. It is said to have been an early Native American name meaning cornfields.[4]


  • Mosher Brook
  • Onesquethaw Creek
  • Feuri Spruyt (Feuri-Sprayt Kill), a small stream in the north part of Coeymans, disappears, and flows for half a mile in a subterranean passage, coming to the surface again in New Scotland.
