An Image of the Past
Yesterday's post about the Raleigh Dining Room, which occupied a building at 520 Warren Street now gone, prompted Bob Rasner to send this quaint post card image of the building that replaced it in 1907, which is now City Hall, in its earliest days.
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.
