Rescue Me: 192 Lander

The architecture of the row homes on the very North end of Lander Street are some of my favorite in Newburgh. They are right up against MSMC’s campus and Gidney Ave. I have been admiring those floor to ceiling windows for some time now. Lander Street might be an intimidating street in Newburgh but, it is also home to some of the most beautiful row homes around. There used to be a detailed listing for this home with many interior photographs. For now, this is the only listing I could find.

If you do a little research you will see that 192, 194,  and 196 Lander all seem to be on the market. The home furthest to the right has had some restoration work done to it already. One day these will be amazing. This set of row homes also has a twin right next door.

Equally gorgeous. There is some sign posted in the windows which I never got a chance to read. Anybody have 5 friends who all want to be your neighbor? PS, the home across the street is up for auction as well.

Newburgh is New York State’s second largest historic district after NYC. Newburgh literally has hundreds of dilapidated and abandoned buildings just begging for someone to come scoop them up and restore them.I’ll continue to post my own photos, but if you have a particular building you would like to see saved, email me the photo of any building you appreciate that you would like to see rescued!

  • Orange signs are usually building permits, so that could be a good thing…

  • I hope so. I love how the original doors are still there on the pink buildings. Kinda sad they aren’t there on the boarded up ones.

  • I too love the floor to ceiling windows.
    If I recall correctly they are like that because that would be the “Parlor floor” – the public room of the house like the living room of today. If the building hasn’t been chopped up there is possibly some nice wood work and fireplaces in there.

  • A while ago this listing used to have interior photos. Lots of carpeting, but the rest looked pretty decent.

  • Are these homes still available for sale?

    • Angela, they are abandoned. Some are owned by the city, others are privately owned, which in that case you must find who the original owner is and contact them to see if they are willing to sell.
