"Great for families and the yuppie set"

Hudson starts its trail through Tribeca with a great spot called 92Y. It's a downtown post of the 92nd street YMCA, but it has become a go-to spot for stand up comedy and other arts performances. It's one of my favorite spots in the city to see some great, alternative stand up. And, a lot of famous comedians go up here.
Across Laight, there are some massive, luxury apartments across the street from Hudson square. Tribeca is already a really expensive neighborhood. But, when you add a park and a luxury building to the mix, the real estate on this block is astronomical. This is where a lot of Tribeca's richest set live. It's far enough west that there isn't a lot of traffic. And, there are actually a lot of trees and kids in this area. The problem with this particular part of Hudson, though, is that there isn't much of a bar or restaurant scene to speak of. But, a few blocks down, at Moore, there are quite a few fantastic restaurants, so you're still close enough (though the bar situation is still pretty bleak). Probably the best brunch place in the city, Bubby's, is right on the corner of Hudson and Moore. It always has a criminally long wait, but man oh man, the banana cream pie will make you pass out from happiness. The drinks are great, the energy is fun and the wait is totally worth it here. Just across the street are two of the most famous Sushi spots in the city: Matsuhisa and Nobu. I don't like sushi but my friends that love it say that these are the spots to be.
There's a great mix of little restaurants, shops, businesses and apartments the rest of the way down through Tribeca until you get to Duane Park (another park). You really can't go wrong in this area. The only thing that's lacking is the nightlife scene which is probably why this neighborhood is more of a yuppie or family kind of area. It's still great though.

"Downtown Thoroughfare"

Stretching from the Meatpacking District in the north all the way down to Tribeca, Hudson Street is one of downtown's biggest (and widest) streets - somewhat jarring in a section of the city known more for its winding side-streets and cobblestoned blocks of townhouses than for its boulevards. Yet Hudson Street is a useful place - if not the city's most charming. Boutiques and counter-cultural bookstores are in short supply here (although Cherry Lane Theatre is a short walk away), but there is a thriving restaurant scene. Check out Le Petite Abeille, a tiny French bistro, or go for an equally low-key romantic dinner at Little Owl or a trendier night out at Centro Vinoteca nearby. There's also an equally lively bar scene, although it lacks the real character of some more "neighborhoody " places (the Barrow Pub being an exception) Plenty of delis abound if you're just looking for a lunchtime snack...

"Amazing place to bar and restaurant crawl!"

This street is really far west and not much of a looker as far as streets in the West Village go; but, man does it have a lot of great restaurants and bars.
Fatty Crab at Hudson and Gansevoort is one of my favorite restaurants in the city. It's Malaysian food it has great music, a hip staff and a really fun vibe. They have pretty spectacular pork buns and this great Recession special: whiskey shot with a spicy pickle back and a PBR for like 5 bucks! You can get pretty full and pretty tipsy here for a minimal amount of pesos. Directly across the street, where the Catharine Malandrin store is, was the address given for Glenn Close in Fatal Attraction!
Just down the street (Hudson and W 11th) is the White Horse Tavern. This is the bar where Dylan Thomas drank himself to death. It's a little fratty these days but it's still a really cool place to get a drink and feel a little bit of history. Further down (Barrow and Hudson) is Barrow's Pub. It's a really divey bar but it's old, the bartenders are really sweet and it has the most eccentric group of regulars (Bob and Metro can be found every Saturday starting at about noon and they are really cool and interesting people).
A bit of a jump away (in Tribeca at Moore St) is my fave brunch place, Bubby's. The wait is long and the place is loud, but man a mimosa and the Banana cream pie as a starter is weekend heaven. Hudson: you are a really cool street for my stomach.

"Interesting stops all along the way"

Hudson Street is a busy road that leads towards the Holland Tunnel and intersects with some of the more popular downtown streets. Because the street is so large and busy walking it can become pretty tiresome but foot travel will lead you to some great food and shop finds. Bagels on Hudson offers wonderful fresh bagels for a quick bite to eat. Hudson Bar and Books is a cigar club that caters to a young upscale crowd. Although crowded and busy it's an interesting stop for those who enjoy cigars. There is plenty going on along Hudson Street regardless of the area of the city you are in. Further downtown is where the area gets almost annoyingly busy, but that doesn't always have to be a bad thing.

"Famous Street of New York"

Hudson Street is famous for the Church of St. Luke in the fields and The White House Tavern. The headquarters of the Hot 97 Radio station is also located in the street. There are several attractive houses across the street. The street is the home of at least sixty five telecoms companies.

"Great Hudson Street"

I have found that the transportation system at the Hudson Street is very good. The uptown M20 bus runs through the Northbound Hudson Street and continues along Eighth Avenue. The street is one of the main access routes leading to and from the Holland Tunnel. The transportation system at the street is very convenient and reliable. The church of St. Luke in the Fields and the White Horse Tavern are the are main attractions in the street. The headquarters of the famous Hot 97 Radio Station is also located in this street.
