This City of Newburgh will be announcing today a new “Hot Box” and the “Mill & Fill” project to deal with the many pot holes that plague the city. The City Council identified over $1 million to purchase the Hot Box which will mill and fill 4-6 streets.  The Hot Box will allow patches to be applied in the cold weather and to last longer. This is the start of a three year project.

Have you been to the new wine shop on Liberty Street, Palate Wine and Spirits? The owners have created a shop that is not only affordable, but aesthetically pleasing for the Washington Heights neighborhood. The decor is a combination of reclaimed wood with leather and metal used for displays. In the future the owners would like to upgrade the façade of the building as well.

Every Friday Palate offers wine tastings which are posted to their Facebook page. It’s a great opportunity to meet locals and find out what is happening in Newburgh. They are open every day, except Mondays, after 12pm.
