Troy’s Hendrick Hudson Hotel building dates back to 1926, and has been such a central part of the Collar City’s life ever since that I’ll forgive it for the hollandization of English explorer Henry Hudson’s first name. (Yes, he sailed on a Dutch ship for a Dutch company. His name was still Henry.)
With more than 160 rooms, and the shops and restaurants that always attended a high-end downtown hotel, it was a key location in Trojan public life, and attracted the likes of Richard Nixon and JFK. And it had an attractive corner in the new lobby!
