I wish we were the friendliest city instead. Trends are fleeting and worthless.

Ah, the friendly city.....It is only in my imagine that I recall a time in Hudson when it was the norm to speak or nod to almost everyone you happened to see while walking on the streets of Hudson.And such a delight when someone shouted to you from across the street and in return you did the same.I find it some what unacceptable that in today’s world I’m either totally ignored or considered a person to be distanced from when I make a simple greeting.Yes Hudson is a great little City to visit and enjoy the many tony places but my City has long ago ceased to be.
Beautiful presentation and narration. Very impressive.
Congratulations Alan - You're a great spokesperson for Hudson!
Sorry to be obtuse, but I haven't even heard of some of these places. This was Hudson, NY, right?
The one that's the real mystery is Feast & Floret. There's a website https://www.feastandfloret.com/, which indicates it is "Coming Soon," but where is not known. All the rest do exist. As I've told you before, FunkyHudson, you gotta get out more.
The new installation at the old Fish and Game location.
Thank you, Bob Rasner!
Yes, you have Gossips. But you are out and didn't hear about this one - LOL! Wait - so does that mean F&G is closed?
Has been since COVID-19 shut down all the restaurants.
Hello, Our business, source adage, has been open for over five years now at 314 Warren St. We would be very happy to welcome you to our store and introduce ourselves and the fragrances we make and sell there. Best, Christopher
Whalers & Merchants, the company that operated F&G, is still there, doing its thing. It’s thing, though, is now Feast & Floret, an Italian kitchen. It will be opening shortly I believe.
Hey Tommy. You are one hundred per cent correct about how especially unfriendly people in Hudson have become. It started when Hudson became more "sophisticated" : the mood on the street became more aloof. Then, that morphed into unapproachable and impersonal. Now, it's just short of hostile.I meet new people all the time, Tommy. Of course, it's usually when they are riding my bumper either traveling up or down Warren or Union Street, wildly gesticulating behind the wheel. My assumption is always that they are either in immediate need of medical assistance, or in desperate need of personal attention, because why else would they opt to try to push my vehicle up or down the street? So, good soul that I am, I get out and inquire. Directly.Yes, Hudson, The (formerly) Friendly City is now Hudson the trendy and urbane and cosmopolitan city. Apparently, they can't be both.Susan
For the second time in 3 months, this morning I watched as a neighbor of mine let his dog poop on grass between the sidewalk and curb, then just walk away without cleaning up. Both times when I have confronted him to try and shame him he says "I'm out of bags," as if that were acceptable. What can we do about people like this? B Huston
Susan & Tommy- you get what you give, and all I read here is sour milk. funny you think its everyone else who smells.
