Well, Hudson Happenings has launched. The Web site was created by the Poughkeepsie Journal to share info about the upcoming Hudson-Fulton-Champlain Quadricentennial and the planned opening of the Poughkeepsie Railroad Bridge linear park project, Walkway over the Hudson.
In the coming months, I expect that planning for this event will grow more intense and we’ll have lots of updates from around the region, including messages from some of the key people involved in that planning. Already, Ulster County has announced it will give out thousands of tulip bulbs next month so its residents can enhance their yards and celebrate the area’s Dutch heritage. Communities along the river are announcing plans for waterfront access enhancements. (Want to know more about that? Read about it Hudson Happenings.) It’s all so exciting! Stay tuned for more!
