The burgeoning tech hub with a colorful past and scenic river views.
Towards the southern tip of Manhattan and resting along the waters of the Hudson River, the hip and upcoming neighborhood of Hudson Square has a palpable energy that’s as enthusiastic as it is artsy. Soon to be the home to the Google expanded campus, Hudson Square has developed a reputation as a tech hub within the city — and is even set to house a campus for Disney.
Though Hudson Square was once best-known through its proximity to other favored neighborhoods such as SoHo, West Village, and TriBeCa, it's recently blossomed into an enviable neighborhood in its own right. Among landmarked historic districts overflowing with colonial homes and row homes is a rich and vibrant history, which includes being noted by George Washington.
Living in Hudson Square can be pricey, and spacious lofts, luxury apartments, and Greek Revival townhomes are often well over a million dollars. But what some residences might lack in space, they more than make up for in luxe finishes and state-of-the-art design. And, of course, all of the real estate in Hudson Square comes with the perks of being a stone’s throw away from some of NYC’s most engaging activities.

Hudson Square is a wonderful neighborhood for hitting up local shops, browsing unique finds, and exploring dynamic local boutiques.
