Before and After: 51 William St

51 Williams St Newburgh

Back in March we shared how 51 William Street was going before the ARC to approve exciting changes to make this abandoned storefront back into a store. A few months later and there is indeed a store in place! During Newburgh’s decline many of the storefronts have been turned into apartments. Bringing these commercials spaces back is the first step in revitalizing William Street which used to be a shopping district.

Latinos make up a huge portion of the population in Newburgh. Not only are they making their mark, but they are helping the local economy starting mom and pop shops. The sign outside says, “Lechonera y Cuchifrito La Braza, Lechon Azado y Mas.” If you love pork, try it out! Let’s hope this becomes a trend.
