Liberty Stone 2

I’ve dedicated a few posts to the importance of restoring and preserving Newburgh’s bluestone sidewalks. It’s a shame to then find out that bluestone on Liberty Street is being torn out, only to replaced with concrete – an incomparable replacement. There’s no need to break it apart when this 100 year old stone can be set back in place. This was the following tip I received:

Newburgh peeps – Central Hudson is replacing the gas lines on Liberty Street, which is wonderful & necessary, but at the same time they are tearing up the blue stone and carelessly replace it with concrete… Anyone who cares about our beautiful city, please call the city manager with your concerns 845-569-7301. It can also be brought up at tonight’s city council meeting.

We just found out from Dispatches from Newburgh that a sci-fi thriller has just wrapped up 5 weeks worth of filming in the City of Newburgh called The App. It is being described as “Edgar Allen Poe’s “The Tell Tale Heart” in the digital age as it merges the utopic scientific advancement intertwined with a brilliant mind’s descent into madness.” The App was produced by Rumpus Room Productions and featured some familiar faces from actors in Pretty Little Liars and The O’Reilly Factor according to Variety.

When the film debuts to the public we’ll be sure to let you know so you can scout scenes of Newburgh.

Sean, Mike, and Amanda are all students at Parsons in NYC. You might see them at your local corner in the City of Newburgh asking residents how they envision buildings in the city differently. Glued to the window of this vacant Liberty storefront they have a map of the city as well as photos along the block. Written on some of the buildings you can see people envision farmers markets and coffee shops. They plan on being in the ‘Burgh to get more input from city residents and might even possibly rent a space to be able to do more community outreach. If you see them, don’t be shy and say hello!
