“The first house to be electrified in Newburgh! Edison himself stayed here while setting up the power station to electrify the city. This magnificent example of Federalist architecture was designed by Thornton Niven in the 1830’s and it was the second house built on Quality Row. 116 has been the home to many artists over the years, as evidenced by the murals by well known artist /writer Don Herron and the creation of a spacious art studio with rear lane access in the back garden. Gracious, understated elegant rooms with perfect proportions are the hallmark of Niven’s design. The original kitchen was in the basement and the pot holder is still attached to the large hearth! The reading library is now a galley kitchen leading out to a wide verandah overlooking the garden and studio. Building does need some work, but provides an extremely comfortable residence while doing the repairs. Basement apt provides income and there is the option of converting the studio to a 2 bay garage.”

This is about a month late but, the City of Newburgh is accepting RFP’s for the purchase and rehabilitation of City Hall, 83 Broadway. The building has a host of costly issues, most significant are the structural issues due to load bearing walls being removed that has caused sagging. There are metal braces holding up entire sections of the building.

The City Manager believes a boutique hotel would be the ideal fit for the building. This is coming at a time when Liberty Street and Broadway are seeing the most businesses open up in the almost 10 years Newburgh Restoration has been in existence. Finally, 96 Broadway is being renovated with plans for a restaurant opening on the ground floor. Safe Harbors has completed the Green Park, and other very exciting projects are waiting to be announced for nearby buildings.

All responses must be received by Thursday, November 15, 2018 by 3:00pm.

Spread the word so that the City might receive diversified and qualified respondents.

Take a look at this property that has been renovated on the west end of the city. It also is a chance to see a “before and after” look of a house that was an overgrown neglected mess. Classic upgrades were chosen, appealing to any design palate. This is often an overlooked area in the city that has just as much potential as homes in the east end.

A very special home, from a very special family. This property is one of a kind and has been completely renovated top to bottom. The listing says it all:

“Renowned architect Thornton Niven laid the cornerstone in 1836 to build this elegant home for Rev.Dr John Brown and his family. According to historic records, the houses either side were built later for his daughters and so this select row of National Landmark homes came into being. “Quality Row” because of their elegance, the cost/quality of the workmanship and the “high social standing” of the original owners. Double brick construction with decorative clapboard ext means these homes are extremely solid, soundproof, and thermally insulated.This home has been lovingly restored and adapted to modern family life, sparing no expense in the high end restoration of this beautiful example of Federal architecture. Lead/asbestos remediated, new

 furnace and wiring upgrades, central AC, marble chef’s kitchen, new roof, gutters, water heater.There is a legal accessory apt in the basement awaiting completion and a carriage house with rear lane access to potentially develop as parking/studio space.”
