upstate ny: hudson


Truly a special little place, Hudson amazed me in every way. The one main street it has is lined with antique stores, furniture shops, art galleries, and impressive restaurants. You can’t enter even one place without commenting on its high-level of hip. Every single building has character inside and out, from eccentric owners displaying their extraordinary collections to the beautiful architecture that leaves you inquiring how much it’d cost to get an apartment in town.
