For people who want to visit from NYC, the bus will pick up people at the Beacon train station. There will be other events going on in the City, so it will be a great time to see Newburgh. See below for details:
While a potential model for the small walkable city of the 21st century, Newburgh’s roots go back to 1609 when Henry Hudson spotted the verdant setting above the River. A bus tour is the ideal way to orient yourself to the city. Return later to visit Washington’s Headquarters, the Karpeles Museum, and the Crawford House. Tour includes buildings influenced by Andrew Jackson Downing and designed by Calvert Vaux, Frederick Clarke Withers, and A. J. Davis, as well as the Colonial Terraces Design District.
Escorted 90 minute bus tour & lecture of the architectural treasures in Newburgh’s Historic District will feature exclusive cameo presentations by local leaders, residents and experts on Newburgh’s history and architecture.
