Paper is up over the windows at 110 Liberty. Looks like something is coming! Does anyone have any idea what’s going in there?

How to Better Newburgh

Hi all.

My family has owned a weekend home in the hudson valley for about 80 years. I’ve always been fascinated by Newburgh and its history, and am sure it is going to be a thriving, vibrant neighborhood once again – and soon!

My brother and I are interested in possibly investing in real estate. Today we went to visit Newburgh and were disheartened to find that most of it is still incredibly depressed. We were charmed by the homes on Grand St and Montgomery St, and were initially thinking of investing in a multi-family home around there.

But my question is – as an investor who is very much interested in revitalizing the city, what is the best way to help the community get on its feet again? Where would be the best place to buy property? Would restoring something in a very depressed area be better than owning a building on Grand St? Would commercial property be a better idea?

Let me know what you think. I feel like people probably have studied these things for years, but I’d really like to know how to help. Thanks a lot!

Seeking a Sublet or Rental for Early October

Hello Newburgh Restoration Community!

I’m heading to Newburgh in early October from Los Angeles, and looking for a short term sublet while I get settled and figure things out and look for a permanent residence.
About me:
I’m a chef. Moving to Newburgh from Los Angeles.
Looking for a private, temporary furnished space. Maybe for a couple of months while I get settled and move my belongings from CA.
I’m very quiet, private, clean and responsible/headache free.

I’m also open to a permanent situation if I find the right place. Once settled, I’ll be looking for a private residence with outdoor space.

I’d appreciate any leads and/or advice.

Thank you!
Naz

Artist looking for bricks

I’m an artist (new to Newburgh) and I’m looking for about 400 red bricks to use for a new sculpture. I’d like real clay brick (not pavers, not concrete), old ones are great, from the Hudson valley would be ideal, but not required. Any leads would be most appreciated!
Thanks much!

Home Renovation

Hi Everyone,

I am in the middle of making a home purchase in Newburgh and should be closing within a few weeks.

The home I am buying is currently a legal two family but was a three family at some point and in the historical district.I am planning on living in one unit, my son in another,and would like to rent out the third. Does anyone happen to know how I would go about having the home converted back to a legal three family? Has anyone had any experience with this? If so, how difficult was the process with the city?

I appreciate any feedback.

Info on a specific house on Grand St?

Maybe a long shot of a question, but do any of you have any information regarding 318 Grand St.? It’s being sold by the bank, as-is, and they aren’t disclosing any info. It looks partially rehabbed, but obviously still a lot more to go. Maybe one of you has some intel that could enlighten a potential buyer? Of course I would get a contractor to inspect it before purchasing, but if anyone has anything to share before that expense I would be grateful. Again, I realize that may be a long shot, but figured I’d ask!

Thank you!

Bicycle rentals

Hello everyone,

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.

Thank you,

Cast Iron Boiler Removal

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.

Thanks

City Terrace and 3rd St.

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!
