Get to know Hudson Square

Though Hudson Square can get overshadowed by its neighbors, SoHo, Tribeca, and the West Village, it is just as worthy of the spotlight. The area’s story covers centuries. George Washington, John and Abigail Adams, and Aaron Burr all separately lived in an estate called Richmond Hill, its former grounds now inhabited by the Charlton–King–Vandam Historic District’s c. 1820s row houses. When loft buildings rose during the 20th century, the printing industry flocked, relying on these steel frame structures with large floor plates to support its gargantuan printing presses. Paradise Garage operated out of a converted auto shop on King Street, revolutionizing music and nightlife culture in the 1970s and 80s. Today, you can have it all in Hudson Square — open pedestrian-friendly spaces, waterfront views, fetching character, timeless residences mingling with sleekly modern ones, endearing eateries — which explains why it calls to everyone from renters to buyers to global corporations.
