  • Pivotal indeed. To the extent that the intent of these monies is to entrench Newburgh with revitalization, in doing so it can also uproot the derelict. Less derelicts…less need for fire and police. See how that works?
    Thanks for the link ; )

  • March 2021 can confirm nothing is being done with PS 6 Liberty Street. But the building directly across from it was redone, actually two building right near PS 6 have been overhauled.
