Hudson in 1905: Part 37

The following is an excerpt from the booklet Illustrated Hudson, N.Y., published in 1905.

M. E. BRENNAN--Undertaker and Embalmer. No. 410 Warren street. This business was established more than four years ago, since which time Mr. Brennan has won for himself a name as one of the most prominent undertakers and embalmers in the city. He is a man of considerable experience in his line and with progressive ideas. His office on Warren street is elegantly appointed, with show and stock room, together with the embalming and morgue department. Mr. Brennan possesses his own hearse and two wagons, and is ever ready to extend to patrons as good service as can be found in the city. He is a native of Bhilmont (sic), and learned his business in New York.

    Will it ever get saved or will it become another hole on Warren Streets architectural landscape ... ?

    1. Vincent--Thank you so much for sharing this information! People need to know this since the rumor in the past has been that Richard Cohen wanted to buy the building to demolish it for his apparently never to be realized hotel project.
