This house is probably past a rescue. If not, somebody with some major money would have to be willing to come fix it up. The details really are great. And it’s best to take a picture before it’s gone forever. This house was interesting.
As I got out my car to take a picture, some curious neighbors wanted to know why I was photographing abandoned homes. I simply replied, “because they’re interesting.” A man then told me that this house suffered a fire 41 years ago. He remembers because he was 8, and he saw it all from the window of his house across the street which, his family has owned for over 100 years. The best part that I wish I would’ve taken a photo of – was his “I Love Newburgh” shirt. It was the perfect moment.
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!
