Hudson NY  is located along the west border of Columbia County. As of the 2010 census it had a population of 6,713, the largest city in Columbia County. It was named for the river and its namesake explorer Henry Hudson.  

Hudson, originally known as “Claverack Landing,” was settled by The Dutch first, then Seafarers from Massachusetts and Rhode Island and merchants.  Carefully designed in the 1780s as a shipping center, with “gangway” alleys, ropewalks, wharves and a warehouse.  Whaling and industry became the mainstays of Hudson’s economy as the city grew rapidly and by 1790 was the 24th largest city in the United States.  As late as 1820, it was the fourth largest city in New York State.

During the 19th century, considerable industry was developed in Hudson, and the city became known as a factory town.  It attracted new waves of immigrants and migrants to industrial jobs. Wealthy factory owners and merchants built fine houses in the Victorian period.   It reached its peak of population in 1930, with 12,337 residents.

In the late 19th and first half of the 20th century, Hudson became notorious as a center of vice, especially gambling and prostitution, boasting more than 50 bars. In 1951 raids during Governor Dewey’s tenure ended much of the vice. Hudson experienced a steep decline in the 60s and 70s and commercial growth moved to the adjoining tow of Greenport. A group of antiques dealers opened shops, eventually numbering 70, on the city’s main thoroughfare, Warren Street, in the mid-1980s, spurring the Hudson Renaissance.

The outstanding housing stock, including many brick buildings of architectural significance helped spur the revival. With skyrocketing housing values on Warren Street and adjoining residential areas many entrepreneurs have realized substantial profits. The City has also attracted a variety of upscale restaurants, boutique hotels, small businesses relocating from metropolitan New York.
