The Newburgh Community Clean Up Mob was in action again this past weekend at 102-104 Washington Street on Sunday, July 8 2012. The heat was intense on that sweltering summer morning. Despite the temperature, 10 people helped transform 102-104 Washington from a complete eyesore to a well manicured building in just one hour. It is amazing to see what can be done with a little free time once a month.
Like 288 Grand Street, this building is on a well-traveled street and was a complete eyesore to visitors. Hopefully this building will catch the attention of someone and be redeveloped. The continuation of the destruction of Newburgh buildings big or small, humble or grand, is a continuation of erasing the history and architecture that makes Newburgh special. Kudos to those who braved the heat and made this city a better place!
