Newburgh Restoration began in December 2008 after being inspired by a successful Newburgh blogger. I noticed that anytime this blogger would mention Newburgh, their followers would become instantly interested and curious about the city with hundreds of historic affordable homes 1 hour North of NYC. So, where would all of these people go to do some more research? The internet of course. However, there lacked a site that targeted these people looking for something positive about Newburgh despite the negative press. I quickly began my search on the internet and found that there was a lot of positive press about the City, just no website that collected them all.
Thus, Newburgh Restoration began and I have been at it ever since. I am constantly invigorated by your positive comments and emails from new people trying to discover Newburgh. And, I am really grateful to those of you that are constantly emailing me new things going on in the City. My eyes and ears can’t be everywhere. If we can get a few families to start concentrating in pockets that start to make a visible difference, people will start to catch on, and I’ll be here to report it.
I am not a historian-even though I love history, and I’m not perfect. Sometimes I might miss a detail or few. But my intentions are always in the right place. If you would like to share your home restoration projects, old Newburgh photos or memories for the blog or, know of any events that you haven’t seen highlighted yet, please contact me. There are a lot of people interested in moving to Newburgh. Help solidify their decision by showing them there is a lot more to Newburgh than meets the eye.
