Local Newburgh photographer, Ann Stratton has started a food blog called Newburgh Food Journal. One of the different things about her food journal is that she is translating posts in Spanish to reach the 47% Latino population that calls Newburgh home. There are definitely many places to discover in the city, we can’t wait to see what hidden treasures she finds.
Newburgh is known for its river views, natural surroundings and historical buildings. So when new Newburgh resident and photographer, Joshua Brown suggested a Connecticut couple come to the city for their engagement photos, they were up for the idea. The result was romantic pictures depicting the beautiful scenery Newburgh has to offer.
Joshua is also interested in photographing Newburgh’s edgier and urban side as a backdrop for his work. He says, “photographically its all about textures and color that small urban environments can provide. NYC obviously has a lot of options as well, but a lot of it has been scrubbed a little too clean at this point. Newburgh has so much visual variety packed into a relatively small area. I’m looking forward to exploring every bit of it.” If you are interested in hiring Joshua Brown you may contact him via his website, or email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Below are some of our favorite shots taken out and about in Newburgh.
Being in school for Urban Planning has its benefits. I am constantly reading articles thinking, “Wow this would be great in Newburgh!” This video did just that for me. Check out speaker, Jeff Speck. He is an urban planner and designer and just wrote a new book, Walkable City: How Downtown Can Save America, One Step at a Time. It hits all the reasons why Newburgh is worth saving, and it also spurs new ideas about how Newburgh can reinvent itself…imagine if Newburgh was the greenest city in America? (Or at least one of the top greenest if not the greenest). It could happen if we can all put our heads together and create the right kind of change. I really enjoyed this video, I hope you do too.
I am really excited to announce one of the new features I have been wanting to bring to NR for a long time, a forum! You can find it up in the menu above. The forum is going to be the platform for anyone with general Newburgh questions or anyone looking for help renovating a home. The benefit of a forum is that community members with knowledge can help answer your questions and this also makes it easier for me to focus on other aspects of the blog. You will have to register and create a login name.
Please use it as your first source when asking a question and Newburghers please visit often to answer topics that have been posted – especially those interested in restoring a house, opening a business, or moving to Newburgh!
It would be wise to read the Community Standards page to learn what kind of behavior is tolerated in the forum and what kinds of topics are allowed.
