In the Twitter and Instagram universes people are talking about a new movie being filmed in the City of Newburgh called My First Christmas. I can’t find any more details, but it is cool to see the film crews on Chambers Street. I guess all this snow is good for something!
Check out this video of this cool outdoors art show that happened back in October called Film Facades. It was quite the event with a taco truck and shuttle that stopped between Beacon and Newburgh. The organizers say they plan on doing more soon.
Local Newburgh photographer, Ann Stratton has started a food blog called Newburgh Food Journal. One of the different things about her food journal is that she is translating posts in Spanish to reach the 47% Latino population that calls Newburgh home. There are definitely many places to discover in the city, we can’t wait to see what hidden treasures she finds.
Newburgh is known for its river views, natural surroundings and historical buildings. So when new Newburgh resident and photographer, Joshua Brown suggested a Connecticut couple come to the city for their engagement photos, they were up for the idea. The result was romantic pictures depicting the beautiful scenery Newburgh has to offer.
Joshua is also interested in photographing Newburgh’s edgier and urban side as a backdrop for his work. He says, “photographically its all about textures and color that small urban environments can provide. NYC obviously has a lot of options as well, but a lot of it has been scrubbed a little too clean at this point. Newburgh has so much visual variety packed into a relatively small area. I’m looking forward to exploring every bit of it.” If you are interested in hiring Joshua Brown you may contact him via his website, or email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
