Hudson Goes Giddy for the Holidays

Rural Intelligence CommunityHudson, although far from being merely on the upswing, is still a study of contrasts. You can see this veering from the town’s more down- and- out areas to the retailers on Warren Street. These are not your everyday vendors; they are all so talented at window display that their storefronts look like year-round art exhibitions. (At left, David Dew Bruner, 610 Warren Street.) This is more than evident during the holiday season, to the extent that a case could be made for giving urban renewal funds to the antiques dealers, gallery owners, and other masters of retinal pleasure who have located here throughout the last decade. Like Hudson’s architectural master builders over the last two centuries or so, this new generation of entrepreneurs are once again arranging things to make community life a thing of grace and beauty; every day and night of the year, particularly evident now. The following is a small pictorial sampling of some of the most festive arrangers, just in case you can’t make it just now.  —Scott Baldinger
