Hudson is located in the upper Hudson Valley in the southern region of the state, approximate 38 miles south of the city of Albany along the banks of the Hudson River. The town of Hudson was named after Henry Hudson, who landed at the site in 1609. An interesting bit of history is that the village was chartered in the year 1785 and missed being the state capital by just one vote. Several antique shops line Warren Street in the business district of Hudson and Promenade Hill is a scenic spot that overlooks the Hudson River and the Catskills. Hudson was once a booming whaling port and has a rich cultural heritage, and has one of the largest assortments of 19th-century architecture found anywhere in the country. The 1811 Robert Jenkins House and Museum is a Federal-style home that contains paintings, local artifacts, whaling lore and a genealogical library. Hudson is also home to the American Museum of Firefighters, and the Olana State Historic Site. River cruises that offer dining and dancing are available on board the Spirit of Hudson. The town also sponsors an annual ArtsWalk, which is a 10-day visual art, performing arts, literary and crafts festival.

Hudson Weather & Climate

The Catskills climate has variations depending on the elevation. There is a totally different winter in the mountains and the higher plateaus over 1,000 feet. There, the grip of winter is strong and steady, and above freezing temperatures are less common. Average January temperatures are three to four degrees colder at elevations from one to two thousand feet and over seven degrees colder at elevations above two thousand feet. Snowfall is fairly uniform during the month of January in the Catskills. The third week of July is generally the hottest time of the year in the Catskills, and rainfall during the warm months is usually confined to a few days rather than spread throughout the month. September has warm days, cool nights and fog at dawn over the Hudson valley. By October the hills are a kaleidoscope of color, and the first hard freeze is usually at the end of October.
