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!

It’s a wonder it hasn’t collapsed already!
