On a typical Saturday in Newburgh on the corner of Liberty and Washington you might see a group of people playing chess. This is part of the Newburgh Chess Club started by Anthony Muhammad, a City of Newburgh Firefighter. He says that he is passionate about the game of chess and even creates and designs his own chessboards. He is focusing on the youth of the city and would like for his shop to be a place where everyone can come and play. If you would like to play for the day the fee is $5 and $20 for the entire month. You can check out his Facebook page for more details.
