The storefront at 15 Liberty Street has finally shed its former life as an apartment, now looking like a proper storefront waiting for a fresh coat of paint. The eventual plan is to create a coffee shop. Peeking inside you can see the preparations of a counter top and artwork on the wall. This work is being done by the SodaCova Group who is also working on 2 Liberty. You won’t see rapid change overnight on South Liberty, but this is complementing other projects such as the Liberty Street School, Simple Gifts & Goodies, and other properties along this corridor.

488 Liberty St Newburgh NY

This is a huge house just opposite Mount Saint Mary College. Judging from the photos it appears to be rented to college students. It depends on who you ask, but neighbors don’t necessarily love living next to these college dorm houses. Only time will tell if or how this property will transform.

This is a home right on the bluff in the Heights neighborhood in Newburgh. Everything in this house needs to be fixed. But the location is desirable – a corner property with no neighbors in front of you.

This is one of the newest houses to come on the market in the city. It probably won’t last long either. Overall, from the photos the house to appears to be in good condition with room for upgrades and needed improvements. It is in a very desirable location, with neighbors such as the Fullerton Mansion and the Monell Mansion.

Take a ride down some of the humbler streets in Newburgh, ones without the mansions, where the factory workers used to live. It’s where the heart and soul of the city is. This property used to have a storefront, and it is privately owned. For detailed information, check the Orange County tax records.

I also love the building next door. The roofline has a special detail to cover a stairway.

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. 196 Ann Street Newburgh NY Google Map
