Drinks At the Waterfront With Historic Hudson
Jamie Larson reports from Hudson. An empty lot beside an abandoned warehouse, surrounded by barbed wire and next to railroad tracks, might seem like a strange locale for a posh party. But this is Hudson, New York, and that’s exactly what took place on Friday, Sept. 1. Historic Hudson held its Drinks on the Waterfront event at the old Dunn Warehouse to benefit the organization and to think big about the future of the highly visible historic site on the Hudson River. There was additional reason to celebrate; the city recently won a $10 million economic development grant for the riverfront district, which means plans to revitalize the building could become a reality sooner than later. The weather was perfect, as was the food provided by Talbott & Arding and the unique Eastern European wines from Hudson Wine Merchants. The party, produced by Katharine Millonzi, also was used to promote the equally unique upcoming Historic Hudson chamber music series.
