Hudson Featured in The New York Times

20140117-071532.jpg Our beloved Hudson, New York was the major design focus yesterday in the ‘Home’ section of The New York Times. What a fab article. It is available online if you did not get a chance to read it. We have been going to Hudson for 20+ years, and it has been fascinating to watch it change and grow. When we found Hawthorne and knew it was the next big town over from Ghent, it really sealed the deal. If you have not been, put it on your list. Hudson is a great day trip from the city. It is a glorious journey by train up the Hudson River, the 2 hours just fly by as the scenery is so spectacular. The main attraction is Warren Street. Block after block of antique shops & restaurants–one of the finest and most eclectic we have ever encountered. Most housed in 150 year old buildings. You kind of feel like you are walking on a set of a Scorsese film. But you are not. This is the real deal. Oh my gosh, I could go on and on of our love for Hudson. Do check it out if you ever get the chance.

  1. I moved to Hudson in 1982 and lived there for 27 years. In that time, I saw many regenerations with the ebb and flow of the real estate market. The first was inspired by the numerous antiques stores that took a chance on Warren Street. Many failed, a number reinvented themselves. Now it is the home stores and restaurants that proliferate. It is a charming — though conflicted — town and I truly wish all these adventurous newcomers all the best of luck. One thing will remain constant and continue to draw new residents…the natural beauty of Columbia County and the Hudson River.
    Best…Victoria

  2. From friends who own the Davis Orton Gallery in Hudson, NY:

    “I missed the print edition but the town’s abuzz about it. This blog article has the pix – so now I’ll put out a blog announcement.”

    And I agree, Hudson really is a special place. Glad you found your special home nearby.
