Gossips has posted a few times about the building at the fork in the road, encountered when approaching Hudson from the north on Route 23B.
In 2011, the house, which according to the tax rolls, is actually in Greenport, was owned by Columbia County. There was a proposal then to demolish the house and create in its place a park, to be known as Gateway Park. This is the rendering of the park that circulated at the time. A central feature of the park design was a boulder, to be donated by A. Colarusso & Sons.
restore the house. He even created a blog to document his progress.
