5 Year Blog Anniversary!

5 years collage

5 years ago today I started Newburgh Restoration. It started off as something just for fun, and I had no idea where this would go, but it has been a great 5 years! We have seen really big changes and a lot of smaller ones. As customary, I will give you the run down of all the great things that have been happening in Newburgh during the past year. And if I miss any please add them to the comment section.

There are a few more really exciting things in the works that I can’t publish till they are set in stone, including a side project of my own. 2014 is going to be a great year for Newburgh. Stay tuned! Thank you to all of you with your tips and photos who help make this blog possible!

  • Amazing to see what has been accomplished and including things that have not even made it to this list!
    Thanks, Cher, for creating a gathering place in cyberspace that Newburghers and curious others can rally around!
    It has truly changed the trajectory of Newburgh for the better!

  • Congratulations, Cher, on the five year milestone. Wherever I go in Newburgh, whomever I speak to, the verdict is unanamous: this blog and your work on it has a tremendous positive impact on Newburgh. Long before the recent spate of positivity about Newburgh in the press, you’ve been on the front line, showcasing derelict and more viable properties. Your interest in my own purchase of a quasi-wreck and your publishing my adventures working on it has keep me stoked to proceed full throttle and think “What can I do next that might interest Cher?” As I’ve told you before, job well done! Thank you for your hard work and dedication.

    • Aww thank you Bob, and thanks so much for participating! You inspire many others to love and take care of their own future dream home!

  • Cher your blog is so perfect for allowing so many people to come together to read about all the great things happening in the city. This is an amazing list of remarkable progress for the City of Newburgh NY!! I am hopeful that this is only the beginning of more great things to come and to be sure you will be blogging about most of them!!
