Earlier this week, Conde Nast Traveler published an article by Caitlin Morton called "The 27 Most Beautiful Towns in America." You guessed it. Hudson is one of them.
There are two things of particular interest about this. In the article, Hudson's population is given as 6,103. Only six of the places on the list have populations greater than Hudson's: Rockport, MA (6,952); Whitefish, MT (8.032); Sitka, AK (8,569); Sedona, AZ (10,341); Beaufort, SC (13,417); and St. Augustine, FL (15,065). The other twenty have populations that are smaller than Hudson's, with three having populations under a thousand: Harpers Ferry, WV (334); Stowe, VT (600); Mackinac Island, MI (992).
Also of interest is that the photograph chosen to represent Hudson in the article (shown above) is the same photograph by former Hudson resident Dan Region that appears on the sign at the Hudson trailhead (located at the corner of North Second and Dock streets) on the Empire State Trail.
