Hudson Profile in The Wall Street Journal


A recent article in The Wall Street Journal took a look at Hudson’s reinvigorated scene and burgeoning real estate market. Following is the opening of the article, by Bill Cary:

After decades of decline, the former industrial city of Hudson has emerged as a thriving tourist destination and haven for New Yorkers in search of second homes.

“In the last three to five years, there has been a steady increase,” said Mayor Tiffany Martin Hamilton. “We now have quite a bit of foot traffic on weekends.”

Set on the eastern banks of the Hudson River, Hudson is the county seat of Columbia County, with a population of about 6,700 and a total area of just over 2 square miles.

The article continues with a great overview of the town’s history, and why it’s currently experiencing a revitalization in food, arts, and architecture. The article concludes with a few Hudson homes currently on the market, and ranging from $225,000 to $695,000.
