“[Jack} Shainman now runs two spaces in Chelsea, but instead of joining his peers’ frenetic expansion to London, Los Angeles, Berlin and China, he opened The School [in Kinderhook], so named because it’s in a stately old public school, not far from his farm. He had initially thought of using it as an art bunker but decided the art should be seen, not hidden in storage. It’s now both a destination for city folk and a source of local pride.“ WSJ MagazineRead More

Hudson historian and journalist, Carole Osterink [Gossips of Rivertown], provides a succinct history of THE CITY OF HUDSON [cityofhudson.org]
EXCERPT: “The little city of Hudson has the distinction of being the first city in the United States—that is, it was the first city to be incorporated after the thirteen colonies became the United States.
“What were once banks and factories are now restored commercial and residential buildings, an impressive patchwork of colors and styles restored right down to the molded cornices, marble pilasters and stained glass windows. There are grand Queen Anne mansions with patterned roof shingles; charming Victorians with turrets and weathervanes; Italianate homes with mansard roofs and overhanging eaves.”Read More

“Hudson was settled as a port town, and wealthy merchants began building (and furnishing) Victorian homes in the city and its surrounding area. Some three centuries later, such a history makes it ripe picking for antiques. The more recent influx of creatives, meanwhile, has increased both supply and demand. Right now, Hudson occupies a sweet spot where supply is high, prices are (for the most part) reasonable, and—a notable bonus—vendors are highly knowledgeable.”Read More
“The single most distinguishing architectural feature of the district and city is Warren Street, a dense concentration of nineteenth-century commercial and residential edifices with intact historic ornamentation. The nine blocks of the street contained in the district are a showcase of a century of architectural ornament dating from 1835 to 1935.” The Hudson Historic District was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1985.Read More

The house and grounds were reinvented by architect Alexander Jackson Davis into a fully realized Romantic-Picturesque estate for Dr. Oliver Bronson and his family in two successive remodeling campaigns dating to 1838 and 1849.Read More

“The Hudson River School was America’s first true artistic fraternity. Its name was coined to identify a group of New York City-based landscape painters that emerged about 1850 under the influence of the English émigré Thomas Cole (1801–1848 ... The New York landscape painters were not only stylistically but socially coherent.... Eventually, several of the artists built homes on the Hudson River.” THE HUDSON RIVER SCHOOL | Heilbrunn Timeline of Art History | The Metropolitan Museum of ArtRead More
