This is an update for an old post on 144 First Street. I posted the “after” photo of this building to Instagram last week, and it was very popular. There were a few comments asking if it was for sale and others admiring the beautiful exterior. It made me think that we should take a look back at what it looked like before. I’ve been calling it a carriage house, but it definitely seems to have been an old store that was replaced with carriage house doors. The result is beautiful and charming. Funny enough, most people don’t realize there are hundreds of buildings like this in Newburgh. They look scary at first but hold a lot of potential for anyone with a vision.
