we lost another today

They bulldozed this house on Prospect Street today.
I have some interior pictures from 2007 that I will share later...

EDIT/UPDATE:::May 6: It turns out I loaded pictures on my flickr page in 2008, when previous owner was cleaning the house out.  Mostly pictures of junk  (a Hudson schoolteacher lived there), but kitchen pantry, stairway with stained woodwork, and  vintage bathroom...

I love how in this one the kids have placed all the local schools right on Hudson's waterfront...
