What Lies Beneath

The Mexican restaurant Pico de Gallo, now located in Stuyvesant, is opening a Hudson location at 623 Warren Street. On Friday, the plans for altering the facade of the storefront came before the Historic Preservation Commission for a certificate of appropriateness. The HPC requested a number of things: elevation drawings for the proposed Warren Street and Seventh Street facades; a spec sheet for the door; and a commitment that no alteration would be made to anything discovered in the process of removing the existing facade without review by the HPC.

Today, the facade on Seventh Street was removed, and look what was revealed.


The signage dates back to the day when the building was the location of the Oneida Market.

Many thanks to Stephen McKay for providing the pictures of the exposed signage  


  1. Fantastic find! Just imagine what might be behind many of the facades of the buildings in Hudson.

  2. Pico de Gallo has great food, reasonable prices and delightful staff. Hudson is in for a treat!

  3. I miss the wonderful stained glass TOGGERY and CLOTHING signs hiding under fa├žade at 613 Warren. Covered in 2013. But at least they're still there...
