Real Estate: 17 Liberty Street

Here is your chance to own your own storefront and residence on Liberty Street in Washington Market. This is part of the Heights Section of Newburgh that was built in the 1890’s. I am not sure if it is the building to the left or the right. But, I am pretty sure this is a foreclosure. This is right next to Simple Gifts and Goodies, a wonderfully restored building, and right across the Street from 12 Liberty Street that just recently had the façade restored. This property is also located right next to the Liberty Street School that is undergoing future renovations. If you click on the link above, you’ll see that this building needs a lot of new things. But, for $52,900 this could be a good project for a handy man.

If restored properly, the person who buys this building could really change the look of the South end of Liberty Street. A real store front needs to be put back in to place. Clustering or a concentration of restored Liberty Street buildings could begin, and a visible change would be present. Interested parties should check out the City of Newburgh Launches Façade/Signage Grant Program for Businesses & Residences. The building across the street used this to fix up their façade.
