Here is a great home to consider rescuing, 106 Washington St. It is only steps away from Liberty Street, Caffe Macchiato, Washington’s Headquarters and neighboring shops. Walking distance from the property is the Newburgh Ferry for those of you that would consider commuting to Manhattan. Next door to the right is the abandoned Clinton Hotel which, hopefully one day will also be saved. This is a wonderful quiet block with a lot of activity from Habitat for Humanity and the many houses they are building in the area. It sold for $256,520 in 2008, but today it is vacant and abandoned.
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!
