110-112 Broadway Newburgh NY

It’s been about a year now since the street has been closed at the intersection of Broadway and Chambers Street due to a report of falling bricks from a vacant building. Recently, repair work has been done to the facade to repair loose bricks. It is unclear whether the owner is making these repairs as a short term solution to hold on to the property longer, or if he is preparing it to sell it. This is a highly visible building on Lower Broadway with a lot of potential that could help the development of the area.

Juice Headquarters Newburgh

The much loved Juice Headquarters will be opening again in a new location, 118 Liberty Street.

There have been a few businesses that have shut their doors this year, and 3 new ones taking their place. I think this shows the persistence the community has in developing the Liberty Street business corridor. We just all have to do our part in supporting them.

61 Clinton Street #1 Newburgh NY

This is a carriage house that is for sale in the MGL area. I had shown this property before as a rental. From what I have heard, the layout is a bit strange. So maybe it would be best to convert this to a one-family carriage house. The cons are there is no yard, just a patio and a balcony, each belonging to one rental unit. However, it’s on a good street, near Newburgh’s most opulent homes, including the historical society. And, it’s a carriage house! It might be perfect for someone who doesn’t want yard maintenance. Click through to the link, there are many more photos.
