September 26 - Tony Musso - Will be presenting the release of my 10th book, "Madams, Mobsters and Murders in the Hudson Valley"
Back Cover narrative:
The tranquil environment of New York’s Hudson Valley is the site of both peaceful rural communities and single-family housing developments. Tourists visit the area’s historic Gilded Age mansions, elaborate gardens, Revolutionary War battlefields, and many other points of interest.
Yet some of the Hudson Valley’s heritage includes more harrowing tales.
From the late nineteenth century through 1950, one otherwise industrious city earned the distinction of being dubbed “The Weekend Vice Resort” for its many gambling halls, brothels and other activities of ill repute.

To preserve the past and present for the future of the Town of Hyde Park.
While the splendor of the Gilded Age is well represented by the Hudson River families, we strike a historical balance to show how the town and it's people flourished.
