I’m looking for a bicycling group that meets up maybe once a week for rides in the Newburgh area. Moderate to semi-quick pace.
I am wondering if there is a bike shop in the Newburgh/Beacon/New Windsor area that rents decent 12+ speed road bikes for the day.
Hi, I’m looking to have a cast iron boiler removed from our basement in the East End Historic district. Does anyone know of any companies or people in or near Newburgh who do this? I hear they can use a sledgehammer or find other ways of taking it apart. We do not want to do this ourselves, though.
I’m looking for any information/anyone with experience or expertise in sustainable energy restoration of a home/house in Newburgh. Geothermal, solar energy etc…
Hi Friends – We’re currently zeroing in on a few properties in Newburgh and will hopefully settle on one shortly. One option is a private sale on the upper part of City Terrace and 3rd Street. I’d love to collect a few opinions on this area – my fianceé isn’t sure it’s safe yet (particularly further down the hill toward 1st). I’m looking at it’s potential being so close to the park, and 3rd street feels much better. Does anyone in the forum live in this area, or know it well? Are we venturing into a part of NoBro that’s still pretty seedy/dangerous?
Thanks in advance for your thoughts!
I am restoring a building on Grand Street and am looking to restore-repair-replace the cast iron railings on the front stairway. I am looking for parts, an entire railing and/or someone who might be able to restore them. I have attached a photo of the building and railings. Thanks.
A contamination scare article mentioned the water supply has been rerouted from elsewhere.
How safe is the water today?
When will the contaminated blood sample results be a available?
I’m a Brooklynite who will soon be closing on a beautiful Victorian two family.
There’s asbestos covering 140ft of pipes in the basement.
I need to get it inspected by an asbestos specialist in addition to a regular home inspection. I don’t know yet what the price will be to contain or get rid of it, but I thought I’d ask in advance if any of you:
1) Know a good asbestos specialist
2) Know if the city helps out with a percentage of asbestos removal projects.
3) Anything else I need to know about this unpleasant surprise.
Thanks and looking forward to joining the revitalization,
My husband and I just moved to Newburgh from Brooklyn and have so many cardboard boxes and our residential recycling bin is full. Are there any public recycling drop off locations in Newburgh?
Greetings, can anyone recommend tradesmen or contractors who do repointing on historic structures?
Just wanted to share some photos I got of the 2016 Illuminated Festival from the roof of the Karples Manuscript Museum, as well as pics of the surrounding neighborhood from every other conceivable angle!
The story: On the day of the festival, Karples was doing (mostly) unadvertised tours of their current residence, the old Newburgh Savings Bank building. these were of the usually off limits upstairs and basement rooms, not the fabulous main lobby, which is open to the public. There were tours posted for 3:15 and 4:00pm, on a teeny, tiny flier on the side of the building. I didn’t even notice these, and only came to find out about the tour by off chance while I was poking around the intricate elevator doors on my way out of the building. A guide caught me and informed me of the tours.
My girlfriend and I were the only two on the 4:00 tour. We were shown the upstairs rooms, mostly in disrepair, but basically untouched since the bank closed in the 1980s. We were shown a room where the FBI used to meet during the race riots of the 1970s (a board room), bank vaults, and various other banking departments. Not much furniture left, but all of the original granite, and intricate wood trim and plaster work remained intact. Unfortunately, I didn’t think to take pictures of the inside of the building.
Finally, we were taken up to the roof to conclude the tour! We got allot of time to take pictures since there were only two of us, plus the guide. The guide was very enthusiastic about showing us the view.
I knew it was possibly a once in a lifetime opportunity, so I took as many shots of the view as I could.
Hope you enjoy!
We are looking to purchase two fireplace mantels, preferably white marble but would also consider a wood mantel also.
I’m interested in installing historic Iron window grills/grates on the basement level floor of the home we are renovating and cannot find any indication in the Design Guidelines of the Historic District whether these would be allowed. Obviously, because they would be period pieces, they would not be constructed with safety exit, but if there are two back entrances and windows that would have modern grating with safety exits, would installing the period grates conflict or comply with building and historic codes? Just wondering if anyone has tried this or encountered a problem with front building restoration.
Does anyone know from this forum whether there are any plans in the future for a supermarket to open in Newburgh? Hard to believe that theres not one in town.
