This sign went up a few weeks ago at the corner of Broadway and Johnston Street right next to the empty Mid-Broadway lot. The fence is new and stops people walking through it as was once a popular habit. I called the number and they said there are no specific plans to develop the site, rather it is an invitation for development. This lot and the Mid-Broadway lot are very important to the future evolution of Newburgh’s widest street. Some people would like to see the Mid-Broadway lot stay as a green park, others still favor a supermarket. What kind of development would you like to see happen to this new adjacent lot? With so many vacant buildings on Broadway needing development it might be a while before anything happens here.

A nice Before and After on Lander Street, a street with loads of potential, just waiting to be restored. The paint choices chosen really highlight the architectural details on this home that otherwise fell flat when the paint was worn. This is the Yenom Building by Yenom Holdings. Thanks for sharing!

NYC or Newburgh? If you were at the corner of Liberty and Washington Street yesterday you might have been confused. New movie, A Scottish Play, was being filmed at Caffe Macchiato as it had an “NYC cafe vibe”. They’ll be filming in and around Newburgh for the next month.
