Restoration of Houses on Dubois Street

Example of beautiful homes in need of repair

If you didn’t catch it this week in the news, there was some hopeful news for 11 homes on Dubois Street. A Restore NY Grant of up to $390,000 has been awarded to revitalize these homes on a block that needs attention. Many of these homes have been converted into multifamily homes, fallen into disrepair, or abandoned. According to the Mid Hudson news,  under the conditions of the program for the project, tenants will be offered the opportunity to buy the properties and can receive educational preparation about home ownership. Apparently the idea is to revitalize Dubois Street through the ownership of these homes.

A face lift to properties is something that St. Luke’s Hospital will probably be glad to see. They have been improving their image. It would be nice to have some of the surrounding properties match. See below for other restoration projects done to other Dubois Street homes. For more positive Newburgh news check out this link.
