…but this time it was for the architecture.

Okay, and more croissants.

But mainly for the architecture (this sounded way more convincing in my head than it does looking at it here on the screen. Whatever.).

Remember my trip to Hudson a few months back? I was blown away by the architecture, which we only got a glimpse of on our too-brief, very cold and VERY windy walk after lunch.

I immediately put “Return to Hudson!” on my summer to-do list, and with Chelsea and my parents in tow, we did just that.

Of course this time it was hot – like, H.O.T. hot. But without a stroller to push (or a toddler to entertain), I knew I’d have at least a few hours to more thoroughly explore the town. We had breakfast at Cafe Le Perche (with another to-die-for croissant) and headed out.

Hudson is called a “dictionary of American architecture in New York State“, which is the perfect description. I could have spent all day taking photos of the landmark buildings lining Warren Street (the main “drag” of the town). Many of the buildings are hundreds of years old, and most have been beautifully restored. Warren Street is filled with art galleries, antique shops and high end kitchen and food emporiums, yet I was completely mesmerized by building after building.

My companions were true champs and stuck with me through the rising temps (with a few lemonade and iced coffee stops), while I snapped pictures or just stood and stared. I’d love to go back and maybe even spend the weekend – those antique shops beckoned.
