110 Dubois Street Newburgh NY

This is a very exciting house to see on the market in Newburgh. It is a beautifully restored home full of original details directly in front of Downing Park. The best part though, is actually the amazing carriage house in the rear that was featured a few years ago on the illuminated tour. If you are looking for a work space or studio separate from your house, this property gives you that chance. It’s sad to see the owners go, but surely someone who truly appreciates this home will move in. The listing features many more beautiful photos, so be sure to click on the link below.

Newburgh Hero

This story was submitted by Ann Stratton about these brave two young men that help put out a porch fire. Well done!

“A couple of local heroes. Anthony Magistro and Miguel Sandoval stopped when they noticed a neighbor’s porch was on fire. They quickly went into action to see if anyone was home and call 911. Together with neighbors across the street Jimmy (an ex-fireman) and Erica put the fire out with fire extinguishers. The fire department arrived to finish the job. Only minor damage to the front porch thanks to the four of them!”

“The Newburgh Rowing Hudson River Walking Trail is an 1,800 foot (about one third of a mile) very easy walking trail from the Washington Street boat launch to the Ward Brothers Memorial Park, a public park which is the home of the Newburgh Rowing club.  Currently, the entrance into the Newburgh Rowing club is not yet open; we will announce when it is.  For now, you can enter the trail from the Washington Street boat launch. Enjoy a scenic walk or bike ride along the Hudson river and (when the entrance is open), end up at the Ward Brothers memorial park, where the Newburgh Rowing club has kayaking and Rowing (for a fee) in the spring, summer and fall.  If you want to carry your own kayak down, you can launch from the small kayak beach located in front of the Newburgh Rowing clubs 6000 square-foot Boathouse. However we urge you to take a safety class before going out on the Hudson river and also never ever kayak alone and always wear a PFD.  Never kayak at night.  The Ward brothers memorial park is open all summer, and is free to the public; it is open for picnics, fishing, and birdwatching, during daylight hours. The park Closes at dusk, no dogs or alcohol allowed.  The picnic pavilion is reserved for members of the Newburgh Rowing club but maybe reserved in advance by contacting the Newburgh Rowing club.  Come out and enjoy the Hudson river and our beautiful park, which you probably never even knew existed!”

An artist pop-up show will be taking place this Saturday to help exhibit the space to potential tenants. The buildings are being coined The Newburgh Artist Colony. A nice article detailing the space can be found here, and here are some details on rental options taken from their Facebook page:

“Calling all Creative People who are entrepreneurs and looking to find a FREE or reduced cost working space. The Newburgh Artist Colony is offering their largest unit, a 2,500 sq ft space on 2 floors for $1,700 per month. The ground floor has a garage door and easy street access. . The garage door also has an embedded entrance door to save on heating costs in the winter, when someone enters or exits the building. 10′ ft ceilings. Subdivide the space and charge your fellow artists to join you. This is your opportunity to work rent free or even make some money. The ground floor space is ideal for someone who is making big sculptures, statues or other large projects as well as light manufacturing or woodworking. The second floor is 1,150 sq ft. There are no support columns. It is just one big, open space. There is natural light coming from the front windows. This space is an artist’s dream. The second floor will be an easy space to divide and rent to other artists. The street is quiet. There is plenty of parking. Free Wi-Fi and a Camera Surveillance system are already in place.
