  • This is really good news and I love the idea for transforming the city Hal building to a boutique hotel. As for the MTA please PLEASE negotiate for weekend ferry service between beacon and Newburgh. It is such an enjoyable, beautiful experience, albeit a short one. But it would bring new customers for all these amazing small businesses in our city

  • Abstractions. Capitalize on what is already here and make it more inviting with curb appeal. Clean up and/or pave Colden, Washington, Lafayette, S. William and Renwick streets. Add signage at their intersects with Water St. inviting the peeps into the Liberty St. Corridor area (which should also be paved). Get rid of the ridiculous “green islands” on Liberty & Bdwy. if they’re not going to be maintained. Clean up the rail over- pass work zone along Water Street. Has the city council figured out a parking plan yet or are they still trying to accommodate everyone? You’d have to be living under a rock to not know of the City of Newburgh. People need to see a real change to alter their perceptions not read about it. Word gets out…slowly but surely.
