PARK(ing) Day is an annual open-source global event where citizens, artists, and activists collaborate to temporarily transform metered parking spaces into “PARK(ing)” spaces: temporary public places. The project began in 2005 when Rebar, a San Francisco art and design studio, converted a single metered parking space into a temporary public park in downtown San Francisco. Since 2005, PARK(ing) Day has evolved into a global movement, with organizations and individuals (operating independently of Rebar but following an established set of guidelines) creating new forms of temporary public space in urban contexts around the world.

The mission of PARK(ing) Day is to call attention to the need for more urban open space, to generate critical debate around how public space is created and allocated, and to improve the quality of urban human habitat … at least until the meter runs out!

On September 5 everyone was excited for a movie being filmed in Newburgh staring David Arquette about organized crime in Apalachin in the 1950’s. The crew was set up on Liberty Street with vintage cars. They were also in the town and other parts of the city.

Take a look at this property that has been renovated on the west end of the city. It also is a chance to see a “before and after” look of a house that was an overgrown neglected mess. Classic upgrades were chosen, appealing to any design palate. This is often an overlooked area in the city that has just as much potential as homes in the east end.
