Construction Waste Removal

Taylor Montgomery recently jacked up their prices for dumpsters by $200 or more for Newburgh. I’m not sure why, but it seems like they’re exploiting a lack of other options. Does anyone have anyone else for construction waste removal and dumpsters? Any help is greatly appreciated!

Fire escape removal?

Hi there,

Has anyone had any luck petitioning the city to let them take down an old fire escape? We own a three family with two fire escapes, and they’re both falling apart and practically hanging off the building. I know in NYC you have to install a sprinkler in the inner staircase for egress in order to remove a fire escape legally. Not sure if the same rule applies in Newburgh?

Thanks

Dozers plowed forward but development didn't?

The dozers plowed their way through back then to make way for development of the downtown and riverfront area of Newburgh. All that happened was that one might as well say, a storm blew in and destroyed all the downtown and riverfront areas. There would be plans to rebuild a better, newer part of Newburgh. But as we all know, still, is that nothing really happened at all. The little that was done was half (m)assed and flying way below where it once was on that flag pole(so to speak). Urban Renewal Project was a crock and money must have been made for all of those responsible for the demise of Lower Newburgh. Reparations should be made to the city and the remaining survivors who were displaced back then from this fiasco. Reparation. It was intentional and for all the wrong reasons by the wrong people for this to have happened. I’m sorry that this is more of a rant than anything positive as others may post ideas of how Newburgh is coming back again. Do you see it? I sure know what I see now!! The government should fix what they f–reaked up. ehm.

Housing + gardens in Newburgh

Hi there!

My boyfriend and I are thinking of investing in real estate in Newburgh (we’re thinking of being the live in super/landlords). I’ve been really inspired by real estate cooperatives in NYC, communal living spaces and co-ops that create and make use of the green spaces around their properties to provide food and other services to their residents (the Kelly Street Garden in the Bronx comes to mind). This might be a big lift, but seems like an exciting and worthwhile project to take on in Newburgh.
So my question is: Is anything like this happening already in Newburgh? Are there community gardens or urban farms that I can visit? Who should I be talking to?

We’re hopefully coming up to visit on February 10th, so I’d love to check out what’s happening and learn more.
Thanks!

NYC Commuters

Hi all,

I’m interested in relocating from New Jersey to Newburgh in 2018. I’m a freelancer with most of my ongoing gigs being in New York City. I’m looking to hear from people about the commute and if there are any tips/local tidbits I should be aware of ahead of time.

I know the Beacon train is probably the most popular option, but anyone out there utilize Shortline on a consistent basis? How packed is it at the 6a/7a/8a hour?

Does anyone drive to a park and ride to get to the city? Are there any that are particularly better than others?

Lastly, and only mildly related, are there any bikers out there who commute to public transit hubs via bicycle? How realistic is this in Newburgh and from what neighborhoods? It’s not a deal breaker, but the option would be nice.

Thanks for the insight!

Finding the way through the Home maze

Hello Everyone,

I’m looking at buying in Newburgh ( living in purchase)in 2018. I’m an artist, currently in Brooklyn who is familiar with Newburgh (my family having had property in Orange County most of my life) and I’m looking to bring my studio and residence to Newburgh, to become part of the community and be part of the wonderful things I’ve seen in person and here on this site happening.

I’m pretty sure that there must be at least one organization in town that helps guide the 1st time homebuyer and the revitalize Newburgh movement ( and maybe one for artists wanting to relocate there?). I’m hoping that you all here can give me a name or organization that I can reach out to so that I can start setting up meetings to gain more info.

Looking forward to 2018, becoming part of the community and moving my photography and ceramics practice/studio to Newburgh.

Any info will be of help – so thanks in advance!

How to Better Newburgh

Hi all.

My family has owned a weekend home in the hudson valley for about 80 years. I’ve always been fascinated by Newburgh and its history, and am sure it is going to be a thriving, vibrant neighborhood once again – and soon!

My brother and I are interested in possibly investing in real estate. Today we went to visit Newburgh and were disheartened to find that most of it is still incredibly depressed. We were charmed by the homes on Grand St and Montgomery St, and were initially thinking of investing in a multi-family home around there.

But my question is – as an investor who is very much interested in revitalizing the city, what is the best way to help the community get on its feet again? Where would be the best place to buy property? Would restoring something in a very depressed area be better than owning a building on Grand St? Would commercial property be a better idea?

Let me know what you think. I feel like people probably have studied these things for years, but I’d really like to know how to help. Thanks a lot!

Seeking a Sublet or Rental for Early October

Hello Newburgh Restoration Community!

I’m heading to Newburgh in early October from Los Angeles, and looking for a short term sublet while I get settled and figure things out and look for a permanent residence.
About me:
I’m a chef. Moving to Newburgh from Los Angeles.
Looking for a private, temporary furnished space. Maybe for a couple of months while I get settled and move my belongings from CA.
I’m very quiet, private, clean and responsible/headache free.

I’m also open to a permanent situation if I find the right place. Once settled, I’ll be looking for a private residence with outdoor space.

I’d appreciate any leads and/or advice.

Thank you!
Naz

Artist looking for bricks

I’m an artist (new to Newburgh) and I’m looking for about 400 red bricks to use for a new sculpture. I’d like real clay brick (not pavers, not concrete), old ones are great, from the Hudson valley would be ideal, but not required. Any leads would be most appreciated!
Thanks much!
