Isn’t that a great view of the Newburgh waterfront in the late 1800’s? You can see it blown up huge here. You can see the entire Newburgh Waterfront, most of which was entirely torn down. I can see the Palatine Hotel, the ferry, the Dutch Reformed Church and much more.

Mill Street Loft Arts (MSL Arts) at Scenic Hudson’s River Center at 8 Long Dock Road at Long Dock Park on the Beacon Waterfront in Beacon, NY, presentsHudson River Waterfronts; Beacon & Newburgh, Yesterday & Today”, a special art exhibition focusing on two important and historic Mid-Hudson River waterfronts.
