Warehouses are hot commodities as they are often desired for their large work spaces or residential conversions. Newburgh’s industrial past has left its mark on the city with many warehouses. A River of Opportunities has been put in charge of marketing some of these potential spaces. Often the first question is “what is available?” The old website did not provide that information, but the new one does. Take a look for yourself. Some of the listed properties are for rent, others are for sale.

One of my personal picks is the building pictured below, 75 Carson, listed for $299,000. Located in the Heights, it is hidden in a mostly residential neighborhood. Royal Fine Woodworking is a tenant. There are some wonderful opportunities for a property like this.

I am also inclined towards 327 Liberty Street, an old girdle factory featured on NR two years ago.

52 Overlook Place Newburgh NY

This house in the Heights section of Newburgh is up for auction. Looking at it here in the chosen palette of colors, it looks like a slice of San Francisco right in Newburgh. Auction details are void of condition details and any interior photos. There is also no mention on starting bid price. However, it is a brick structure that looks pretty solid. Most likely it will have your usually old home issues. It is just down the block from the bluff, and neighboring homes are well kept. If interested, you must be present at the Orange County Court House when the auction takes place.

162 Grand St Newburgh NY

This is a beautiful home for sale, set among some of the finest in Newburgh. The listing gives great historical details, “Lewis Smith was one of Newburgh’s wealthiest citizens in the late 1800’s and he hired renowned architect Frank Estabrook to create a home that demonstrated that fact. Estabrook homes were known for their fortress-like construction quality and for their high level of detail and craftsmanship.” Just look through the pictures and you will see that this home is full of original details and has been updated nicely, respecting the history of the home. Next door neighbors are young families and others are new transplants to Newburgh. Not featured in the photos in the house located to the rear of the property that has a long driveway on the right. It is an equally beautiful house that was recently on the market.
