Galloway Gallery: Exhibit 28
It recently came to Gossips' attention that the Galloway Gallery was missing a few exhibits. The most recent acquisition--213 Union Street--had been added to the gallery, but there were a few others that had escaped Gossips' notice. A little time spent with the eight pages in the tax rolls taken up by properties owned by Eric Galloway and Galvan Partners uncovered what had been missed. So today, we resume the Galloway Gallery with two houses on North Fifth Street: 70 and 72.
70 North Fifth Street
72 North Fifth Street
The two houses, which are attached, are directly across the street from the much discussed 67-71 North Fifth Street--the larger of the two Armory houses. Galvan Partners acquired the two houses in October 2011. Since they already have columns and Greek Revival door surrounds, one hopes they can be restored exactly as they are.
This blog takes its name from the 1850 novel by Hudson author Alice B. Neal. The original Gossips of Rivertown cast a gimlet eye on Hudson society in the mid-19th century. More than a century and a half later, the new Gossips carries on the spirit of the original, but in a different genre and with a different focus.
