One thing that is for certain is that Newburgh will become a City of Contrasts, as it has once been called before. A city is an ever changing place, and the mix of the modern and classic architecture in Newburgh is a testament to that. It is also essential in the continuation of the growth and positive development of the city as long as it’s roots can be preserved. The year 2011 is going to be an interesting one in Newburgh, with the new campus that can hold 2,400 students, and more completion work being done at the Ritz Theater that will have a seating capacity of 825. Hopefully these projects will breathe more life to the city and spur more economic growth. Like the positive news? Don’t forget to check out the news articles to the right.

Overall, from the photos the house to appears to be in good condition with room for upgrades and needed improvements. It is in a very desirable location, with neighbors such as the Fullerton Mansion […]
Take a ride down some of the humbler streets in Newburgh, ones without the mansions, where the factory workers used to live. It’s where the heart and soul of the city is. This property used to have a storefront, and it is privately owned. For detailed information, check the Orange County tax records. I also love the […]
