The City of Newburgh published yesterday the March 2014 list of properties that it owns. It is 49 pages long. The list includes everything from vacant land to crumbling structures to beautiful historical homes. The Monell Mansion still has not sold and unfortunately is back on the list. This home on 205 Broadway is available. The exterior maintains historical details but the original porch is missing. You can find out more details about it in the book, “Newburgh: The Heart of the City” by Patricia A. Favata page 58.
Buying a city-owned property comes with challenges. If you would like help, consult this guide made by city residents: Helpful Notes to buy Newburgh city owned property. Perhaps the city will start publishing on a monthly basis the properties it owns?
