Tony Bourdain’s Take on the Hudson Valley

Here’s the Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations episode on the Hudson Valley. He captures the classic attitude of most New York City dwellers (and tourists) toward “Upstate,” or the Hudson Valley. I continually argue that the Hudson Valley is a world of its own, not a piece of the generic “upstate” moniker. Keep your eyes peeled for some nice shots of Haverstraw. I’ll warn you, there are a few errors in the episode. At 7:00, shots of Grassy Point are mistakenly used for Verplanck. Below is the first of three segments. The following two segments will automatically play, so keep watching.

  1. While the crew didn’t quite catch the full essence of the Hudson Valley, I think they did a damn good job for a one hour program. I’m writing this post from West 92nd Street; just watched the program from the youtube link above. This episode actually made me miss the River a bit; luckily it’s right at the end of my street, and I’ll be riding across its widest point on the Hav-Oss Ferry tomorrow evening. . .

  2. I was drooling over that featured Polish Deli. I can eat smoked meats three times a day. Polish Deli in the Village???If only…..I also loved the segment with Bill Murray. X20 is delicious. We ate there this summer. What a place.Now bring that to our waterfront.

  3. A pierogi shop would be divine. I’d hike my arse up to Haverstraw from DUMBO every weekend to get some. Loving it. Pine Island is a little far, although that’s beautiful country up there.
