Rescue Me: 302 Grand Street

This is a relatively simple house in comparison to its extravagant neighbors on Grand Street. It has been vacant and neglected for a long time. The makeshift tarp roof will only hold so long. Hopefully, the current owners will let the house go and put it on the market so that someone can save it before it’s too late. For detailed information on the property, check the Orange County tax records.

There are over 700 abandoned or vacant properties in the City of Newburgh. Habitation of these properties is vital to the revitalization of the city. 302 Grand Street Newburgh NY Google Map

  • I spent many happy hours in the late 1950s and early 1960s playing with the kids who lived here and their (very numerous!) young neighbors. It was a really charming house, inside and out…

  • Wait a minute— the City should be collecting that $5,000 a year vacancy tax on this. It’s an abandoned property just needs a squatter to move in and repair the roof and claim it from the city. Would a petition from neighbors help? I know some adjacent neighbors are distraught by what’s happened in this case because it is a historic property. Where is that issue? Aren’t there any people involved w that who care?
