Lander Street has some of the best, intact row homes in Newburgh. Directly across the street are 3 owner occupied buildings. This could possibly be a good spot to consider owning your own home to continue the momentum. I hear there’s a small garden across the street where the neighbors share their produce.
This whole block of 5 buildings on South Street between Liberty and Chambers Streets is for sale. A previous deal has fallen through and they are back on the market. I thought it was a good time to share these properties now.
These buildings are being sold individually although the most impactful development of these properties might be as a group. Newburgh isn’t like other Hudson Valley cities or towns with just one main commercial thoroughfare. This example at South Street shows the various commercial corridors that can be found in the City of Newburgh. Most people focus on the residential income potential but the 5 storefronts could use thoughtful placemaking development that would uplift and benefit the community. They are located right off the northern end of Liberty Street. A few projects and properties to watch that can speed the momentum of development of this area are: Weigand’s Tavern, the Girdle Factory, 307 and 315 Liberty Street, and others that are for sale.
This isn’t the easiest corner in Newburgh, but this property has potential. It’s located just one block north of Broadway at the corner of Johnston Street. There is backyard parking, and the entire side garden comes with the purchase which, has many possibilities. As you can see the storefront is closed up. Ideally it would be opened back up again and used for a commercial or retail purpose. Granted, this isn’t the most traversed sidewalk so it might work well as an office or studio.

This property is located just one block up from Broadway. It’s a very rough area. Most of the surrounding buildings are vacant, abandoned, or boarded up. Although it looks scary, I like the potential these quirky buildings have. If neighborhood revitalization can reach this area, there are mixed use possibilities with these buildings. You could wonder off Broadway to find small shops off the beaten path – something that makes cities feel quaint and unpredictable. It’s a quality that draws us to many major cities, and it’s here in Newburgh. It’ll happen, it’s just going to take time.

A few years back I featured this home on a Rescue Me post. It’s on the market now, listed even higher than the $150,000 it was listed at before. It’s quite a lot of money for a building that is probably a shell, and there are no interior photos to prove otherwise. The low taxes are also a tell to the condition. This is also a rough location. All that aside, it could be a beautiful home demonstrating Newburgh’s array of architectural potential.
