There are two brand new apartments available to rent at 13 Chambers Street from the Newburgh Community Land Bank. This is a street that has been seeing a lot of development from Habitat, the Land Bank and neighbors. The architect who designed these apartments will have his office on the first floor and has done an amazing restoration of the original storefront. This is a historic rehab so original details have been preserved.

No smoking and no pets. Tenant pays utilities, but the units are very efficient with instant hot water heaters, new efficient windows, etc. Laundry is in the building and there is off street parking. There are income requirements.

2 Bedroom Apartment – $1059
3 Bedroom Apartment – $1300

277 Third St Newburgh NY

Looks are deceiving with this home right in front of Downing Park. This seemingly small home is actually quite large, and is being advertised as a 2 family property. The interior is a bit difficult to make out due to the many personal items in the photos. However, there is a nice long driveway on the left which is a luxury when living in the city. Being in front of Downing Park is a nice feature as well.
