Laura Ellner- Unracked- Hudson, NY

What do you do, and what makes it unique?

UNRACKED is a fashion destination for the curious– designed to inspire discovery, creativity, and community.

What brought you to Hudson, and how long have you been here?

We’ve been in Hudson for nearly two years, but just moved to a new location at 234 Warren in May! Hudson has an allure like nowhere else– it just felt right to open a shop here.

What’s it like being a part of Hudson’s business community?

The community here is like none other. There is so much love and support among small businesses. I am so happy to be in a place where my neighbors share my sentiment that collaboration is beneficial for everyone!

What makes Hudson a unique place to visit?

Hudson is a small town with a lot of personality. There is so much creativity and authenticity here. It is a breath of fresh air, especially if you are looking to get out of the city for a few days!

What is one thing visitors to Hudson must see while they’re here?

The Antiques Warehouse is awesome, but walking down Warren and just wandering in and out of the many amazing shops and restaurants is what really makes Hudson such a fun and special destination!

What’s your idea of a perfect weekend in and around Hudson?

I would wake up, go to Moto for coffee and a croissant, or some sort of fabulous brunch at The Maker. After that I’d walk around and shop for a while– Source Adage, Nina Z, and Kea Carpets and Kilims are some of my absolute favorite spots.

I would make my way down to the Antiques Warehouse to explore and soak up all the inspiration this truly unique space has to offer over by the train station. After that, I’d hop in a car and go watch the sunset at Greenport Conservation Area– there is truly no sunset like a Hudson Valley sunset.

Then drinks, of course– my go-to and favorite spot is Lawrence Park!

What is your favorite memory of being in Hudson (so far?)

Sunsets and sunrises. And being accepted with open arms by all the other business owners and innovators in the area. It is such a special place to be– whether you are looking to live or move here, Hudson is magic!
