The Eviction of the Furgary
Word is that at 3 a.m. this morning, a Hudson Police Department SWAT team entered the Furgary Boat Club to carry out the City's promised eviction. The three Furgarians who had decided to spend the last night there left peaceably. By 5 a.m., the Department of Public Works had started installing a plastic fence around the area, and by 7:30 a.m., when Gossips arrived to take these pictures, DPW workers were inside pruning trees and cutting shrubbery to ensure that the police would have an unobstructed view of the site lest people sneak back to the shacks.
