The antiques shop next to Caffe Macchiato had a good run. It occupied a storefront with attractive things, although unfortunately they didn’t really service the public. It was used more for storage than anything else. The space has now been emptied, awaiting the next game-changer for Liberty Street who will hopefully engage the community.
This is the perfect location for a new venture in the City of Newburgh. It’s right across the street from Washington’s Headquarters, right next to Caffe Macchiato (which has a new owner with new plans-longer hours!), and down the street from Jenny’s Florist. Now that there are a few dining options on Liberty Street, it would be nice to see some retail introduced to diversify shopping opportunities. 97-99 Liberty was completely rehabilitated from the crumbling shell it used to be. Further proving the priceless value of historic buildings in Newburgh’s east end.
