The article reveals some interesting bits of information:
- Galloway and van Ameringen are establishing a foundation dedicated to Hudson, which will be headquartered in 400 State Street, now the Hudson Area Library.
- General Worth's birthplace (211 Union Street), the Robert Taylor House (which the article refers to as the "Dutch House"), and 400 State Street "will be among the buildings held by Galloway and Van Ameringen's Foundation"--in perpetuity--although it is not clear, except for 400 State Street, for what purpose.
- Galvan Partners recently bought the Little League baseball field on Hudson Street for $60,000 from the Hudson Elks Club, "which was in need of resources to operate their organization," and made a commitment to fund the operation of the field for the next ten years.
- Galloway and van Ameringen see their work in Hudson as having three parts, which Galloway describes in the article in this way: "We know it is going to have the historic buildings or the social and architecturally significant buildings, which we will keep in perpetuity for the benefit of Hudson. [So far, those are General Worth's birthplace, the Robert Taylor House, and 400 State Street.] And we know that we will continue to develop or improve properties that will have a positive impact on the vibrancy of the streets and neighborhoods of Hudson. The third element is to contribute and support local organizations who provide services to the residents of Hudson and that will be through direct contributions though [sic] non-profit organizations."
Exactly what, one wonders, are they pessimistic about?
