Hudson

"After a steep decline in the 60's and 70's, [Hudson] has undergone a significant revival.  A group of antique dealers opened shops on the city's main thoroughfare, Warren Street, in the mid-1980's, the earliest being the Hudson Antiques Center, founded by Alain Pioton, and The English Antiques Center.  Their numbers grew from a handful in the 1980's to almost seventy shops today.  Following this business revival, the city experienced a residential revival as well, and is now known for its active arts scene, antique shops, restaurants, art galleries and nightlife."  "Hundreds of [Hudson] properties [are] listed or eligible to be listed on the National Register of historic places, Hudson has been called "the finest dictionary of American architecture in New York State." A discussion of Hudson's architecture, its history, and recent revival, together with a collection of 200 period photographs of the city spanning the mid-19th to the early 20th century, [is available in the book] Historic Hudson: An Architectural Portrait by historian Byrne Fone.
