According to the U. S. Census for 2000, Hudson has a total area of 2.2 square miles square miles and a population of 7,524 people, 64% white. The median income for a household is $24,279 and the per capita income for the town is $15,759. We suspect that these figures have substantially increased.
Hudson, originally known as “Claverack Landing,” was settled by New England whalers and merchants and was chartered as a city in 1785. 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.
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. A group of antiques dealers opened shops, eventually numbering 70, on the city’s main thoroughfare, Warren Street, in the mid-1980s.
Following this business revival, the city experienced a residential revival as well, and is now known for its active arts scene, antiques shops, restaurants, art galleries and nightlife. In recent years Hudson New York real estate values have steadily increased. In the past year these values have jumped considerably.
Its Amtrak station is very attractive to relocating New York City residents who find the 2 hour trip to New York a good substitute for living in the Big Apple.
