It's true!Hudson will never truly come back till it seizes its history, and make it real, and honors it.It's not just about whaling captains and their faboo houses, it's also about all the hardworking women and men that relieved all the pent-up angst of the seamen below decks... Of course, Diamond Street is the most obvious example of that history.I believe Warren Street was "Main Street" pre-1950's.There was a bar called "The Crystal Room" on Warren Street with a glass block front. Sadly, gone. Palpable memories seem to exist, though...All the alleys do need to be labeled... Cherry Alley, Prison Alley, Rope Alley... damn, there's one more, but I'm forgetting it now.Let's call it "Hooker Lane" for now.
i believe it is a good idea, Lisa is the front runner of this, The Diamond Street Renaissance. Btw great site!
