Architecture Du Jour: Cold Spring, NY

Blowhard, Esq. writes:

Fabrizio took me on a tour of the Orange County area of the Hudson Valley this weekend and we ended the day in Cold Spring. The central part of the village, which is on the National Register of Historic Places, has a number of charming 19th-century buildings. Lots of vibrant color, too.

    There’s a lot of lovely architecture throughout the Hudson Valley. Many of the towns fell into great disrepair when the factories closed down, but some are getting gentrified now and making a nice comeback. The town of Hudson is one of those — I’ve never seen a place with about 40 antiques dealers on a single street! It’s got some great restaurants as well. Unfortunately some of these towns also have their share of that other kind of vibrancy, Section 8 housing. But given the easy train access to New York City, it’s a no brainer that these towns make excellent vacation homes, or even year-round homes if you’re close enough. And often just outside town you’ve got a true rural space, with mountains to climb, etc. The Hudson Valley is the new new Brooklyn.

      I had the chance to visit Troy last year, very beautiful in parts but clearly the town had seen better economic days. It got me thinking about New Urbanism or rather that architecture alone is not enough to revitalise cities.
