Welcome to Hudson


The city's renewal was largely kickstarted when LGBT city dwellers were drawn to the area by affordable housing, which quickly lead to a commercial boom. Evidence of the city's history of post-industrial fallout is still very present, especially on the outskirts of town, which makes for a remarkable contrast with the glossier gentrified districts.
