Visit RADC: Hudson’s Giant Antiques Warehouse

Past the first enormous entrance that is brimming with vintage furniture, antique collectibles, art, and tools, you’ll find that the space extends into individual shops, art galleries, boutiques, and stands. You also might notice that much of the warehouse is still open in the back. Since the space opened as a marketplace relatively recently, it is still getting filled with dealers and shops--and quickly, too.

Connecting Brooklyn and Hudson

Sipping on a hot toddy in a string light strewn back bar, chatting about the show you saw last night, the smell of fresh curry dumpling on the air and overheard snippets of conversation about art exhibits and broken L line service. Step outside for fresh air, and find yourself not outside one of Brooklyn’s many atmospheric dives along the likes of Birdy’s or Carmelo’s in Bushwick, but rather on a bustling little street in Hudson itself.

Things to Do in Hudson: November 2017

This year it seems overdue, but now it is fall in the Hudson Valley. We’ve gone beyond decorating pumpkins to scare us towards pumpkins to eat. Many of us claim suddenly to like turkey, even while we are interested chiefly in the stuffing. The home improvement stores do a brisk business in giant paper lawn bags that some of us buy by the dozen so we can stuff leaves and then stand these tall bags by the curb, where they look like huddled soldiers waiting for evacuation. These days the nights are long and getting longer. We will get together with family—or lament that some family members aren’t with us.

The Rip Van Winkle Bridge—Hudson’s Connection to the West

The Hudson Valley is oriented generally on a north-south axis. Besides the river itself (one of the very few rivers in the world that run north-south), all the major roads in the region reach north from New York City directly south. The New York State Thruway, Routes 9 and 9W, The Taconic Parkway and several smaller roads all follow the course of the river. Amtrak runs north and south through Hudson. From Poughkeepsie the Metro North trains run south to Grand Central Station.

Hudson in the Movies

Hudson may lack a main-street movie theater, but it has certainly starred on more than one occasion upon the silver screen. And while it’s true that Time and Space Limited shows movies regularly out of a former warehouse on Columbia Street, and there’s a mainstream multiplex, Hudson Movieplex, up the road on Route 9 a couple of miles from town, most of the cinematic action in Hudson has taken place on or very near Warren Street.

The Norman Rockwell Museum

Norman Rockwell, decades after his last Saturday Evening Post cover, remains an iconic American artist.

At their best, his paintings are painstakingly humanistic, highly evocative and masterfully rendered. Many today find his works almost in the realm of kitsch—but too often the critics will forget that Rockwell painted for a commercial market. He was an illustrator and a keen observer of the American scene of his day.
