  • Great reads, thanks Cher.
    As per Newburgh and New ‘Burbs: A 21st Century Plan for a 20th Century City [Plan Your City]…
    The author’s premise that Newburgh’s issues, mainly crime and unemployment, are the result of an inadequate “transportation infrastructure” is false positive. When one considers that the crime “industry” seems to be running unencumbered, adding to its ‘import and export employment base’ while meeting the demand of its “affluent” suburbia neighbors,the notion of “better access and mobility” becomes moot. I’ll reiterate, the City of Newburgh does not operate in a vacuum and “bridging the gap” is a relative term suited to meet the author’s general thesis.
