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!

Hi,

There are indeed a few urban gardens in the city. You might have to wait to spring though, to see which ones will be functioning again, or reach out to them. For starters, check out the urban gardens tag to see all related blog posts. It’ll give you an idea who to contact and what gardens the city has had in the past.

The Newburgh Armory usually has plots available and last year there was farming at Downing Park. Also, check out this page. There are a few other grassroot groups who plant on vacant lots they have purchased or have taken over.

I also came across this link today, great tips!

Hope this helps!
