Sean, Mike, and Amanda are all students at Parsons in NYC. You might see them at your local corner in the City of Newburgh asking residents how they envision buildings in the city differently. Glued to the window of this vacant Liberty storefront they have a map of the city as well as photos along the block. Written on some of the buildings you can see people envision farmers markets and coffee shops. They plan on being in the ‘Burgh to get more input from city residents and might even possibly rent a space to be able to do more community outreach. If you see them, don’t be shy and say hello!

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.
