This handsome brick house is one of three on Third Street that is vacant or abandoned. All of them are architecturally beautiful in their own right. However, time is not on their side. We don’t know how long they will last without some maintenance. This is a bank owned property. For detailed information on the property, check the Orange County tax records.
This is a relatively simple house in comparison to its extravagant neighbors on Grand Street. It has been vacant and neglected for a long time. The makeshift tarp roof will only hold so long. Hopefully, the current owners will let the house go and put it on the market so that someone can save it before it’s too late. For detailed information on the property, check the Orange County tax records.
The property has seriously deteriorated over time. Yet, the detailed paint job harks back to a different time. Sixty seconds after I took this photo, someone jumped out a car and ran lightning fast into the alley behind the house. My cue to go. For detailed information on the property, check the Orange County tax records.

Touring the historic homes on Grand and Montgomery, I spotted this home on Clinton Street. It suffered a fire last year and appears to be vacant. Records say it was home to Newburgh’s late former mayor, Mary Crabb. Mary served in place of her husband Tyrone, who was originally elected mayor but died of a heart attack before he could take his oath. Hopefully, the property will be repaired before further damage takes place. For detailed information on the property, check the Orange County tax records.
