This Before and After post is located in the Colonial Terraces Neighborhood of Newburgh. This section of the city is full of attached homes that were originally created for ship builders working on the waterfront during WWI. As you can see below the house was boarded up and unsightly. The owners have done a nice job at updating the home but keeping historical touches in place like the colored glass and built-ins. The property is available to for rent. If you are interested, there will be an open house this Saturday, June 14 from 12:00-4:00pm.
