Rescue Me: 13-15 S. Johnston


These are three abandoned buildings on S. Johnston that are right next to St. George’s Cemetery. They are a garage, carriage house and store front. They look like they have been abandoned for a long time and are deteriorating fast. Google maps shows the buildings in June 2012 in slightly better shape. Now they are pretty much just brick façades. They will cost a fortune to fix but the character and presence they create can never be duplicated.

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. 13-15 S. Johnston St Newburgh NY Google Map *The addresses were quite hard to figure out, so they might be wrong.
