The City of Newburgh has published its November 2015 property list. Most properties are vacant or abandoned like this one above at 31 Clark Street. I picked this one to showcase because there has been development on this block. Habitat for Humanity just built 3 news homes on Clark Street that will go to owner occupants and another home has been rehabbed and is available for rent. It is also just around the corner from a huge development project yet to be announced. Washington Street is just at the corner and in walking distance is Liberty Street and Washington’s HQ. Overall, it is the mass rehabilitation of these smaller buildings that will change the Newburgh landscape. It’s a great simple rowhome that probably needs to be gut renovated. The minimum purchase price for this property is $9,300.
