This picture was probably taken in the early 1970s. Bliss Towers has been built. The Hudson Terrace apartments are in place, looking strangely dark to those of us who remember them with powder blue vinyl siding. The area from Columbia Street to State Street below Second is devoid of structures, as is the south side of the first block of Warren Street. On the waterfront, all the buildings are gone and oil tanks have taken their place. When and how did this happen?
The photo caption reads:
A Contrast: The New And The Old Photographer Wendy Neefus of Neefus Studios, Hudson, captured this view of Hudson from the air showing the river-front middle income housing development, the Warren St. historic rehabilitation district behind which parts of the sale housing constructed by Channing Corp. may be seen, and the high rise low income housing complex at the right, an area adjoining some of the oldest structures in Hudson. At the far left is the city's boat launch site, and, in the foreground, the railroad station that will be undergoing a renovations [sic] that also will include new parking facilities. The bare section of Warren St., center right, will be the site of a neighborhood shopping center.
