Video of Newburgh Waterfront on Ferry 1920’s

This video of the Newburgh Waterfront in the 1920’s has been quite popular on youtube. John L has posted the video from his grandparents collection. What a stark difference from the other video of his collection showing the destruction of the waterfront. I think it’s important to look at videos like this to remember this history of Newburgh and to also to give some hope of what it could be like when revitalized.

You can see the opposite side of the Newburgh Ferry Terminal. What a shame that it was razed during urban renewal.
