As illustrated on Thursday, there is a high concentration of Galvan properties in the First Ward, primarily on Union Street. This is not the case in the Second Ward, where there are only four Galvan properties. Three of these are on Warren Street. The fourth—12 North Second Street—adjoins another Galvan property, 202-204 Warren Street.
Galvan's apparent lack of interest in acquiring property in the Second Ward may simply be owing to the fact that the foundation's registration statement, filed with the New York State Charities Bureau, describes the organization's purpose as "To preserve the unique heritage of the City of Hudson by acquiring, interpreting, conserving and maintaining buildings of architectural and historical significance," and there are few such buildings left in the Second Ward.
