Rescue Me: 242 Broadway

242 Broadway Newburgh NY

Here is a corner building on Broadway that has a lot of potential. The building to the left has been really nicely restored and fixing 242 Broadway would really complete this block. It used to be home to a bodega, La Guadalupana and apparently before that it was home to Hudson Rug Co. just like 315-317 Broadway. Let’s hope this building doesn’t fall into such disrepair that it has to be torn down like thousands of other buildings in Newburgh. The current owners bought the building for $1 and the property is assessed at $123,500.

There are over 700 abandoned or vacant properties in the City of Newburgh. Habitation of these properties is vital to the revitalization of the city. 242 Broadway Newburgh NY Google Map

  • That’s a really great building. I’ve seen it a few times and was wondering if anyone has information on it. From what I’ve found out it’s privately owned, not on the city owned properties list.
