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!

William Street has been seeing some small improvements. Recently the sidewalk in front of a stretch of empty space has been replaced. And for you bluestone purists out there, no this sidewalk wasn’t anything but crumbling concrete before. Hopefully, this will be the first of other improvements to come.
So sad for Newburgh tonight and the two lives that were lost during today’s tornado. Most have no electricity and no cell phone service in the city. This is just some of the damage on Liberty Street where the roofs came off two buildings. The city is in a state of emergency.
