Our Story: Newburgh

Last summer a group of individuals went out and canvassed the City of Newburgh interviewing residents to find out what their Newburgh story was. This was part of the Sound and Story Project, a non-profit organization that builds community memory and sense of place by recording and sharing local stories and regional sounds. They have some wonderful recordings of older Newburgh stories, but this video is what people think, see, and feel today.
