The Future of the Furgary

At the Common Council meeting last night, Supervisor Ellen Thurston (Third Ward) asked if there was "any way the City could extend the period before eviction beyond 30 days" so there would be time for documentation of the Furgary Boat Club. The actions of Mayor William Hallenbeck this morning indicate that there is no will and therefore no way to postpone the eviction. What is most important now is for photographers to document this piece of Hudson's unique character and its history and for the Furgarians to allow this documentation to happen.

  1. Would be great to have a documentary done of this unique place with conversations with the people there before it disappears. Lynn Davis would be perfect for the job.
