120 1st Street Newburgh NY

I am very excited to see this house on the market. This house is a Quality Row house, 1 of 5 homes in between Liberty and Grand Street on the north side. Cut up into 4 apartments, this house has taken the longest to receive any restoration work like the neighboring houses have. Looking at an original photo you can see that the top floor is an extension. Interior listing photos reveal that a lot of details have been removed, but still, many remain. Being that this is a side lot you get a carriage house (that had major structural work done recently) and a garage, as well as a 2-level porch. If you are a history buff and preservationist, this is a wonderful block to consider restoring a home, as all the other homes on this side of the street are owner occupied and are well-maintained. Dutch artist, Paulien Lethen, just moved here. I’ve heard she has some exciting plans. To see inside the other Quality Row homes, click on the neighborhood tab, Quality Row.

In 1883 Thomas Edison stayed in one of these homes as a guest while establishing the Edison Illuminating Company.  And, according to Newburgh: Her Institutions, Industries and Leading Citizens, this is how Quality Row got its name:

At the time of their erection these house were considered much above the average in cost and elegance, and for this reason, combined with the high social standing of the original occupants, the buildings were known throughout the village as “Quality Row,” a designation which still lingers among our old families.”

183 Liberty St Newburgh NY

I’m quite excited that this property has been newly presented with proper interior photographs. I have always thought that this home had a lot of potential as it is quite different from neighboring homes. Even though it was evident that the property had suffered severe damage, you could never see inside till now. The only the original that remains is the staircase and perhaps the front door. Everything has has been totally gutted and wiped clean. If you have the cash, this is an excellent location to consider a total rehab. There are about 4 other homes on this immediate block for sale. It is a great opportunity for revitalization work to happen collectively on this block of Liberty Street between Broadway and First Street.

I’ve documented the reasons why many times but to mention them again: the Broadway/Liberty Street intersection will be seeing major changes in the next year with a community park and rehabilitation of 96 Broadway. Across the street is 188 Liberte and around the corner is Quality Row. The homes there are consistently owner-occupied by progressive residents. Dutch artist, Paulien Lethen, just moved there. I’ve heard she has some exciting plans. Also, I was able to come across a historical photo below so you can see what Liberty Street looked like about 80 years ago.

A Quality Row beauty is up for sale. The homes of Quality Row are historical gems. This house lives up to the reputation of the block with well maintained interiors with historical details. In 1836 1883 Thomas Edison stayed in one of these homes as a guest while establishing the Edison Illuminating Company. This is how the name Quality Row came about according to the 1891 publication Newburgh: Her Institutions, Industries and Leading Citizens:

At the time of their erection these house were considered much above the average in cost and elegance, and for this reason, combined with the high social standing of the original occupants, the buildings were known throughout the village as “Quality Row,” a designation which still lingers among our old families.”

Another home for sale on Quality Row. Designed in 1835, those houses are now national historic landmarks and in 1836 Thomas Edison stayed there as a guest while establishing the Edison Illuminating Company. While this house doesn’t have any notable historic attachments to it, the Quality Row houses are well maintained. Purchasing and restoring this home will add to the improvements already being made here and the Quality Row homeowners I have met are very friendly. Be sure to check out the house to the left that is also for sale that is smaller and cheaper. The asking price seems high since one of the Quality Row homes across the street was listed for the same price last year, but in much better condition.

This is a quaint house in need of work on a desirable block in Newburgh. It’s located just opposite the houses of Quality Row designed in 1835. Those houses are now national historic landmarks and in 1836 Thomas Edison stayed there as a guest while establishing the Edison Illuminating Company. While this house doesn’t have any notable historic attachments to it, the Quality Row houses are well maintained. Purchasing and restoring this home will add to the improvements already being made here and the Quality Row homeowners I have met are very friendly.
