The Newburgh Waterfront looks totally different today than the way you see it in the photo above. During the “urban renewal” project of the late 60’s and early 70’s hundreds of buildings were torn down. After remaining desolate and barren for years the Waterfront saw a revivification in early 2000. Now the Waterfront is home to many restaurants, a film center, a marina, a fitness center, spa, and residences. The once abandoned West Shore Train Station has been restored and will house a cafe and playhouse that will open in the Fall of 2010. The Newburgh Waterfront has helped bring many people to Newburgh. It is the hope of many that the revilization of Newburgh will move up Broadway and through out the city. Plans to develop the rest of the Waterfront have been made but not actually happened as of yet.
