This is an impressive transformation of a house on the north side of Broadway. Just a year ago this house looked vastly different. It appears to have been renovated top to bottom. When some of these houses in Newburgh seem helpless, this is an example of the potential they hold. Around the corner is St. Luke’s Hospital, but this area is still very challenging.

150-lander-street-newburgh-ny

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.

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. 150 Lander Street Newburgh NY Google Map

south-street

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.

Below are the individual listings in this sale:

170 1st St Newburgh NY

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.
