I’m so excited that my husband and I will be closing on hour future home on Lander Street shortly. It’s a lovely little gem and we are excited about making our new home in Newburgh. Two of the interior doors have a pane of the original etched glass broken out and thankfully one panel from each door remains. Are there craftsmen or glass artisans who can replicate historic etched glass panels that can be recommended?
Noah and Jon here. Happy Spring!
We’ve been up to Newburgh a few times recently, and last week we stumbled over The Foundry condos. Any forum friends living in The Foundry? We’ve seen a few foreclosed units for sale, and thought it might be a great stepping stone into Newburgh from NYC as we search for the perfect permanent home/gut renovation. Are many of the units vacant? Any experience with Foundry residents?
My partner and I are going to be moving to Newburgh in April! We are going to be living in the heights and are trying to establish internet service at our rental home. However, we are not having much luck. We are going to be staying on Liberty St. Washington Heights and the internet companies don’t seem to understand that the street exists. We have to have the internet at home, as my partner works from home. I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions or recommendation for a good internet provider.
We are considering having a sewer line inspection done (with a camera) on a house we are hoping to buy. Has anyone had this done in Newburgh? Has anyone regretted not having it done? The house is old and there is a tree between the house and the road so we are afraid of clay pipes and/or root problems leaving us with an expensive sewer lateral replacement. But we haven’t found many people offering this service locally.
I believe the mansion at 333 carpenter has been put up for auction. Does anyone know if it was purchased?
Hi Ive been reading for a while and thinking of purchasing in the area around Washington’s HQ (perhaps the heights).
Ive been trying to get a better sense of the neighborhoods to concentrate my search on. I live in NYC and will be up for a second trip this weekend, but mostly my search has been online.
My understanding is that HQ area (is this SoBro?) would be the best area for someone who values walk-ability. My question is, are there other neighborhoods to consider? It is hard to find a neighborhood map of the city. I know I don’t want to be near South street or near the hospital. MGL seems spotty especially on Liberty street near the college. The heights seems sort of block by block at this point?
Any help from people who know the area better would be appreciated. Thanks!
I fell in love with Newport,I want to move there to live.
I am interested in the issue of employment in the firm on repair and reconstruction of houses.
I have no education construction,but have a great desire to participate in the restoration of the magnificent homes of the city.
Have experience of repairs of his own house.
I will come only at the end of the year, green map, so find out in advance about the possibility to find a job.
Thanks to all!!!
Hey Everyone –
Meandering through Newburgh Restoration and the web this morning, I thought I’d ask our second question regarding a “Shop Small” or “Buy Local” movement. I lived in Portland, Maine for almost 20 years and in 2006, we formed Portland Buy Local (portlandbuylocal.org) in order to support locally owned, independent businesses. Portland has seen a dramatic transformation over the last 20 years – going from a rough-around-the-edges middle class town to an explosive destination filled with amazing restaurants, thriving small businesses and incredible swarms of tourists in the summer. I owned and operated Maine Cocktail Tours (http://mainetoday.com/eat-drink/historic-meets-alcoholic-maine-cocktail-tours/) for two years before moving to NYC. Anyway, I saw the incredible work that Portland Buy Local did for the community, and I’m a strong believer that a coalition of small businesses is part of the key to a successful revival of a city.
Is there currently any Buy Local movement in Newburgh? I’ve seen posts for Small Business Saturday, but I haven’t been able to find any other resources.
If there isn’t any current 501(c)(3) organization in this realm, is there interest from the business owners and entrepreneurs of Newburgh for this type of coalition?

My fiancé and I have fallen in love with Newburgh for many reasons, and are planning on relocating from NYC in early 2017. We love that Newburgh has a large community of activists, artists and those dedicated to the sustainable growth and development of the beautiful city. From what we can tell, Newburgh also seems to have a good size LGBT population.
We’d like to purchase an abandoned older building and do a complete rehab and restore, although we are still trying to decide whether we want to go for a single family or a multifamily, living in one unit and renting out the other(s).
We’ve seen lots of advertisements in 2 Alices and online for recently renovated apartments for rent, but we’re curious on what the vacancy rate and market is like for these units? Any multifamily owners on the forum who can provide any helpful insight? Is there perhaps a glut of apartments for rent in the city right now?
