In August 2015, Bloomberg Business included Hudson in its list of the twenty richest small towns in America. Hudson was seventeenth.
In August 2017, NYup.com identified the poorest places in each of the sixty-two counties in New York. In Columbia County, it was Hudson, with a median household income of just $14 more than the median household income of people living in the Bronx.
A former mayor of Hudson might attribute this apparent loss of wealth to his loss of the mayor's office in 2016, but it's more likely to be all in how people look at the numbers and what numbers they look at.
