Real Estate: 119 William St Garage $20,000

119 William St Newburgh NY

Bing bird’s eye view shows this to be a shell. Google Maps (newer map) shows a partial roof. Double check before.

William Street is rough, really rough. Rough like most of the buildings on this block are vacant, burned out, or on the brink of collapse. It also happens to be one of my most favorite blocks. It is characterized by smaller buildings that often have commercial shops on the first floor (although many have been converted) and living quarters upstairs. It’s the perfect set up for small business owners, studios, and other endeavors. Newburgh’s large mansions are great, but William Street has the character of a small European town with its original red brick roads.

It’s a lot of imagination, but it’s what this area originally was, and what it has the potential to be. That said, I often get emails about people looking for garages and other fun spaces. This listing is for the garage only and it is a commercial space. The house to the right is for sale, and is probably a gut job. It looks like the owner is trying to sell them together, possibly with other properties. You could create a live/work set up here.

This is the kind of space for someone wanting to make change, not be where change has already happened. See it in person to see if you are up for this level of urban pioneering.
