HUDSON, NEW YORK

UPPER HUDSON RIVER VALLEY

Known as “Upstate’s Downtown”, Hudson is truly an urban oasis situated alongside the Hudson River. It is rich in cultural activities, a vibrant neighborhood feel with coffee shops, restaurants, bespoke retail and some of the best antique and interior shopping in the North East. It’s an easy trip to do with public transportation and not feel stuck. Warren Street is the main hub and has a strong community vibe.  It is easy to see the Brooklyn comparison; High energy, Innovative and Entrepreneurial. A Pinterest purveyor’s dream.
