The Hudson River Region
From Manhattan and Brooklyn to the Catskills and the Adirondacks, the Hudson River region is home to extraordinary farms, artisans and Makers. Long the breadbox for New York City’s restaurant scene, this region is celebrated for its growers, distillers, brewers, bakers and food artisans, while its thriving arts scene draws inspiration from rich urban and rural landscapes. Of course, this is nothing new: the shores of the Hudson River have historically inspired Walt Whitman, Mark Twain, Henry David Thoreau, Ralph Waldo Emerson and the naturalist, John Burroughs. It’s a land that unites cosmopolitan thinkers with staggering natural beauty.
