Not to Be Missed

"Crude and Unrefined" On his blog, Sam Pratt has published a December 1984 article from Hudson Valley magazine about the plan from that era to build an oil refinery in Hudson. The quotes from Mike Yusko, then the mayor of Hudson, and Art Koweek, then chair of the Hudson Community Development Office, are shocking. The most stunning comes from Koweek, who said of Hudson's waterfront: "It's an industrial area. Let them go out of town to get access to the river."
