I’ve dedicated a few posts to the importance of restoring and preserving Newburgh’s bluestone sidewalks. It’s a shame to then find out that bluestone on Liberty Street is being torn out, only to replaced with concrete – an incomparable replacement. There’s no need to break it apart when this 100 year old stone can be set back in place. This was the following tip I received:
Newburgh peeps – Central Hudson is replacing the gas lines on Liberty Street, which is wonderful & necessary, but at the same time they are tearing up the blue stone and carelessly replace it with concrete… Anyone who cares about our beautiful city, please call the city manager with your concerns 845-569-7301. It can also be brought up at tonight’s city council meeting.
