Hop on the bus! The art bus that is! The City of Newburgh will be launching an art shuttle from June through October 30, 2010 every Saturday. The scheduled departure times from the Newburgh Landing will be at 12:15, 1:15, 2:15, 3:15 and the last run will be at 4:15.
Passengers will travel on board from the waterfront, down several of the most beautiful historic streets in the city and will make stops at the Karpeles Museum, the Ann Street Gallery, Washington’s Headquarters and the newly restored Broadway Park. The park is located at the foot of Broadway and overlooks the breathtaking vistas of the Hudson River. It’s the perfect place to sit and drink in the serenity.
Points of interest along the tour will be the David Crawford House (home of the Historic Society of Newburgh Bay and the Highlands), important architecture by famous 19th century architects, i.e., A.J. Downing and Calvert Vaux, the Dutch Reformed Church and the Old Town Cemetery. The “Art Bus” will travel down Liberty Street with its quaint shops and restaurants. Riders can catch the bus to return to the waterfront after their visit.
Visitors will be exposed to the broad range of beauty contained in the City of Newburgh. The City has the largest contiguous historic district in New York State outside of New York City.
