Great news just came over from another great Newburgh blog, My Second Favorite Organ. This home that I photographed last year that was in need of saving will indeed receive some aid from Habitat for Humanity. Unfortunately it looks like they might tear it down because it is unsalvageable, but the restoration of a home on this plot will do a great service to this section of Liberty Street! Two homes that were once abandoned will now be added back to the list of rehabilitated homes. Check out My Second Favorite Organ for photos of the back of the home. It’s a wonder it hasn’t collapsed already!
This Newburgh cat named Shushma needs a home. She’s spayed, vaccinated and her current caretaker will provide pre-adoptive vet car and full vaccine updates. She needs a home! Contact erikabern(at)gmail.
A nice Before and After on Lander Street, a street with loads of potential, just waiting to be restored. The paint choices chosen really highlight the architectural details on this home that otherwise fell flat when the paint was worn. This is the Yenom Building by Yenom Holdings. Thanks for sharing!

NYC or Newburgh? If you were at the corner of Liberty and Washington Street yesterday you might have been confused. New movie, A Scottish Play, was being filmed at Caffe Macchiato as it had an “NYC cafe vibe”. They’ll be filming in and around Newburgh for the next month.
