Hudson in 1974

Included in the recent scans on the amazing website are these pictures of Hudson, taken in 1974 from the recently constructed Bliss Towers. 

Looking southeast--the building at the bottom of the picture still stands on North Second Street, next to Long Alley (see below); in the background, at the left, you can see that dome of the courthouse and the spire of St. Mary's Church

Looking south--the building at the bottom left stood where Providence Hall now stands; at the right, along the river, you can see the oil tanks that were once located just across Ferry Street Bridge
Looking west--to the right, the buildings that were once Hudson River Knitting Mills still stand intact; straight ahead and to the right, the northern end of the then newly constructed Hudson Terrace Apartments
Looking northwest--"The Shacks" can be seen, just beyond the waste water treatment plant at the left
Looking north--the church building that was once Sacred Heart of Jesus Church, known familiarly as the Polish Church
