Newburgh for Newcomers will hold a Networking Social on December 8th for those interested in learning more about buying a home in Newburgh NY and hear from others who have experience with the slowly recovering real estate market.
People are moving into Newburgh drawn not only by “great housing stock at rock bottom prices” but also by the energy of artists (and artisans), musicians, writers, and many other creative thinkers. Recently, reporter Lisa Selin Davis took N4N’s successful Architectural and Heritage Tour, and her ensuing New York Times article “Newburgh N.Y. Seeks Renewal Without Gentrification” (November 10) has created a buzz about home ownership in the city known as the Queen of the Hudson.
Join N4N for wine and cheese 5-7 p.m. at 272 Liberty Street, an outstanding example of 2nd Empire architecture with mansard roof, Juliet porch, and stained glass windows.
Bring your curiosity and questions to Madeline Fletcher,Esq. of the Newburgh Land Bank charged with acquiring and efficiently managing abandoned properties, local architect/developer Drew Kartiganer who has experience with investment properties, and residents of Newburgh Heights who collectively restored and sold a property in their neighborhood.
Talk with people like yourself who have moved to Newburgh and are restoring homes and want to share what they’ve learned through the experience: Meet Bob, recipient of a Census Tract IV grant from Mount St. Mary College, who blogs about his DIY Chamber Street fixer-upper on www.newburghrestoration.com. Experience Newburgh and meet those involved in building community.
The Networking Social will be held after the close of the Historical Society’s milestone 30th Candlelight Tour on December 8th, noon to 5 p.m. Call 845-561-2585 for tickets to the tour.
Then come for wine and cheese and valuable insights 5-7 pm at 272 Liberty Street. See www.n4n12550.com for details or call N4N co-chair Dick Bedrosian at 917-676-5515 to make your reservation.
