WEST SHORE TRAIN STATION
27 S. Water Street
Newburgh, NY 12550
Welcome to Hudson Taco, located in the heart of downtown Newburgh in the historic West Shore Train Station. This station was built in 1909 by Warren and Wetmore, the same architectural firm that designed the most celebrated railroad station of all time, Grand Central Terminal in Manhattan. Interesting Fact — the West Shore Train Station was built four years before Grand Central! Warren and Wetmore created a collection of train stations for a smaller train line out of Manhattan. People from New York City came “upstate” to Newburgh for shopping and sightseeing along our beloved Hudson River. However, in 1958, the train station saw the last of its passengers and sadly, between the fire damage the station sustained and removal of roof shingles, the train station was boarded up and virtually left in ruins. After nearly 50 years, a restoration between 2001 and 2009 brought a renewed interest in the station and all that it could mean to the community of Newburgh.
We here at Hudson Taco consider being a part of the revitalization of Newburgh a great opportunity to highlight all of the local gems that surround us right here in the Hudson Valley.
Hudson Taco sources many products from local farms, cheesemakers, wineries and we even collaborated with our neighbors, Newburgh Brewing Company, to create “aMAÍZing”, a delicious corn lager made from New York State grown corn from Hudson Valley Malt that pairs beautifully with all of our dishes. To say that we are excited to share this menu and experience with all of you is an understatement.
We cultivated our menu by applying our own signature twist to Mexican street food.
Our flavors are as exciting and unique as the community we are serving. We are so grateful you decided to join us today and be a part of our enthusiasm for what’s to come in Newburgh. Just as those trains over 100 years ago brought folks to experience the splendor of the Hudson Valley, our hope is that Hudson Taco brings people together in this magnificent, historic building for great moments, delicious meals and unforgettable memories. Cheers!
