Hudson Today

While parts of Hudson were subjected to “urban renewal” in the mid-twentieth century, and some noble buildings were demolished in favor of parking lots, many of the City’s historic buildings were simply boarded up, as there was no commercial incentive to demolish and replace them.  Paradoxically, this neglect eventually enabled a new renaissance, as individuals appreciating historic architecture began to move into Hudson in the mid-1980s, supplementing the efforts of other like-minded residents.

These photo galleries, showing contemporary images of the Alleys of Hudson and the Doors of Hudson, showcase the beauty of the City’s architecture: at times juxtaposing old and new, and at times simply admiring either the dogged survival of Hudson past in all its color and texture, or historic preservation efforts bearing fruit.
