All summer long work has been steadily happening at 96 Broadway. A few weeks ago I was invited to see the interior updates of the adaptive reuse of this historical building that has been dilapidated for years.
Coming to the ground floor is a restaurant called Mama Roux. It will be a Cajun inspired restaurant. This project also acquired the adjacent lot which will be used for outdoor dining. You can follow updates on Instagram.
Above the restaurant are six apartments. As part of some of the incentives received a few are designated as affordable housing. They range from 1-2 bedroom apartments with nice finishes such as central a/c, video intercoms, skylight portholes on the top floor, pocket doors, and great views of lower Broadway.
This corner of Liberty Street and Broadway acts as the gateway to some of Newburgh’s business corridors. It had been dark and vacant for over a decade. To now see the building occupied gives inspiration and hope for what can happen to other long neglected anchor buildings in the community.

If you have ever walked down Liberty Street on a nice afternoon, chances are you probably brushed shoulders with Aaron Lown. He was a Newburgh maker and inventor who passed away suddenly. Please consider donating to the GoFundMe page set up to help is family in this difficult time.
The corner of Liberty and South William has another new business opening up called Rob’s Roast Coffees. Opening day will be tomorrow, July 26th at 7am. The coffee shop has a cyclist inspired decor, nodding to Rob’s triathlon love and passion. In his spare time he fixes old bicycles. He was trying to find a location for his shop up and down the Hudson Valley when he happened up Liberty Street in a “happy accident”.
This new venture joins new activity happening on Southern Liberty Street – Oliver and Chatfield, the new space for lease at 42 Liberty Street, new hair salon Liberty and Beauty, and another exciting project soon to be formally announced for South William Street.
