About 2 hours too far north for me!

Upstate could really use the influx though. :)

Very cool, that is just a little bit over an hour from me. That area could use the jobs and its a great area to move into.

Here's some more on the news, from a local perspective:

Hudson, by the way, is very easy to reach from New York City. There's an Amtrak stop within a couple blocks of the main street, Warren. It's kind of like we have our own NYC subway station... And Hudson's also a little under two hours drive via either the (beautiful) Taconic Parkway or (less-appealing) I-87.

Oh WOW!
175 People in NYC
and building a CUSTOMER SERVICE BUILDING
in a remote location
to hold 50 people.
And they don't have the man power, time or money it appears
to repair the search engines so Buyer can find stuff to buy
from sellers.
They're going to need it
I would guess.

This is really exciting on many levels. Those of you that know the recent history of Hudson and the ongoing debates about whether future growth should include heavy industry (i.e. cement plants), this will illustrate another possible route. I don't believe that any residents really want a cement plant--they want jobs. This is a win-win situation for Hudson: economic growth with an environmental compromise!
