This building is located at 2 Liberty Street, directly in front of the Liberty Street School. Right now it is pretty much a shell as the roof has collapsed. Liberty Street is the focus of the revitalization epicenter in Newburgh. This property would be a great addition to the movement. It was bought in 2004 by Hudson Valley or Renaissance LLC for $15,000 from the City of Newburgh. Today it just sits vacant, deteriorating, and doing nothing for the community.

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!
