It isn't over until it's over.
Yesterday I announced that, with Exhibit 13, Gossips had concluded its "Galloway Gallery" series, but I was wrong. Last night I learned from a reliable source that, within the past two months, Eric Galloway has acquired this house: 119-123 Union Street.
Probably since the 1930s, the house has been divided into four apartments. Colum Riley, who was an alderman for the First Ward from 2001 to 2005, used to live here, as did his brother Kieran. Christopher Froese, the pastry chef for Brandow's and brother of Tom Froese, president of the Hudson Opera House Board of Directors, also had an apartment in this building.
In its simple, symmetrical Georgian Colonial design, this house is similar to three others on lower Union Street--all built by Proprietors (the founders of Hudson) or sons of Proprietors: the Paddock House (117), the Worth House (211), and the Macy House (241). Eric Galloway now owns two of the four houses.
