Old Newburgh Photos: Newburgh 1994

Abandoned storefront, Newburgh, New York, circa 1994, James Kaval

James Kaval sent over these photos he took over 20 years ago in Newburgh in 1994, perhaps earlier. They are quite wonderful as they capture many buildings that no longer exist, like at Broadway and Johnston Street. Thanks for sharing James!

If you have old Newburgh photos you would like to share on Newburgh Restoration email me.

  • These bring me back to my earliest memories of the City of Newburgh, when I went to pre-K at Sacred Heart on Ann St. and Robinson Ave in the mid 90s. My grandfather, who used to manage the A&P on Broadway and know everyone in Newburgh, would drive me through the city after school and tell me about better times. Even though he hated what had become of the Newburgh he grew up in and it made him sad (especially to go near the waterfront), he would take me because I liked the old buildings.

    Because of this early influence on my life, I remember that when I was asked to draw a house, store or building as a young kid, I would always draw it with some of the windows boarded up, missing or broken, and some of the facade cracked or falling off. That’s how I thought houses and cities looked everywhere.

  • Thanks for those memories.
