This Brick Shell located at 104 Washington Street is ready to be saved. Though the roof and floors are missing, leaving this building a shell the masonry looks to be in good shape except near the roofline where it’s been exposed to the elements. There’s a small alley separating it from 100 Washington, and a what looks like a car pass-through between 104 and 102 Washington.
Right around the corner from The Wherehouse, The Newburgh Brewing Company, Cafe Macchiato, and many other local businesses and parks. This building would make a perfect multi family or a large single family home.
Newburgh is New York State’s second largest historic district after NYC. Newburgh literally has hundreds of dilapidated and abandoned buildings just begging for someone to come scoop them up and restore them.

This Brick house isn’t too far from saving. Although part of the roof has collapsed it looks as though most of the interior floors are still intact. The building is located on South street about half a block east of Liberty St. only a short distance from Mount Saint Mary College, St. Luke’s Hospital, the waterfront, and many other shops and delis.
It’s also right next door to two churches.

This brick shell on Third Street is located directly across the street from Downing Park and would make a great addition to the area, if rescued in time. The sign on the door says it’s up for auction so interested parties should call.
If renovated this building would be perfect for anybody looking to have a park nearby while perhaps encouraging others to rescue some of the buildings on the surrounding blocks.
