This year Park(ing) Day is Friday Sept 20, 1pm-4pm. Come hang out with us! Providing temporary public open space . . . one parking spot at at time. Join us in Newburgh as we create public spaces for all to share.

Last year Newburgh hosted its first Park(Ing) Day. This is a day when people reclaim a parking spot and transform into a public space like a pop up chess park, a yoga spot or simply public park with seating.

Small businesses that are participating:
Atlas Studios – 11 Spring Street
Hudson Valley House Parts – 159 Broadway
Liberty Street Vintage – 89 Liberty Street
Newburgh Free Library – 124 Grand Street
Newburgh Repair Café – 115 Broadway
Oliver & Chatfield – 42 Liberty Street
PANJA – 15 Liberty Street
Rob’s Roast Coffee – 42 Liberty Street
Shelter House Café – 123 Carpenter Avenue

If interested in setting up your own park(ing) site, please let us know. You do not need to be a small business.

Thank you to Orange County Citizens Foundation for programmatically supporting this creative placemaking effort.

More about PARK(ing) Day
Park(ing) Day is a annual open-source global event where citizens, artists and activists collaborate to temporarily transform metered parking spaces into “PARK(ing)” spaces: temporary public places.

The project began in 2005 when Rebar, a San Francisco art and design studio, converted a single metered parking space into a temporary public park in downtown San Francisco. Since 2005, Park(ing) Day has evolved into a global movement, with organizations and individuals (operating independently of Rebar but following an established set of guidelines) creating new forms of temporary public space in urban contexts around the world.

The mission of PARK(ing) Day is to call attention to the need for more urban open space, to generate critical debate around how public space is created and allocated, and to improve the quality of urban human habitat … at least until the meter runs out!

I’ve heard it a million times – the ferry doesn’t run often enough! The train is too expensive! Buses don’t run frequently enough!

The counties of Dutchess, Orange, and Ulster are currently doing a study to evaluate the effectiveness of current regional transit services. The Connect Mid-Hudson Transit Study is a joint effort to assess the overall mobility needs of the three counties and identify possible coordination opportunities that could enhance regional transit service and efficiencies through shared resources.

The City of Newburgh has been awarded a $50,000 Urban Forestry Grant from the NYS Department of Environmental Conservation to revitalize trees and sidewalks along the South William Street block, from 9W to Walsh Rd.

Thirty new trees will be planted in large 3 x 5 tree pits, replacing 21 damaged trees; damaged sidewalks will be replaced. A wide variety of trees have been selected for their urban reliability, low maintenance, and beauty in spring through the fall. The new sidewalk sections will incorporate structural soils that encourage tree root growth without damaging sidewalks.

The benefits of planting and caring for urban trees will be taught with the assistance of Cornell Master Gardeners and the Newburgh Armory Unity Center. Tree donation can be made here.

The Regional Plan Association (RPA) in The Fourth Plan just released their vision for Newburgh in 2040. The city is envisioned to be a healthy and equitable city that is a gateway to the Hudson Valley. Here are some key points of their plan:

  • Partnership with St. Luke’s and MSMC for a buy local initiative, workforce development, and reciprocal capital and economic investments
  • Bus rapid transit will ease congestion on I-84 and connect the downtown to an expanded Stewart Airport and Metro North Station at Beacon
  • Anti-displacement measures and legal counsel for low-income residents.
  • Apartment buildings are created into affordable cooperatives or creation of community land trusts
  • Through inclusive planning and agreements, Newburgh will be home to people from many races, ethnic groups, and income levels
  • A network of open green spaces that include Snake Hill and Quassaick Creek
  • Green infrastructure technologies to reduce dependence on the city’s sewer system and protect the region’s water quality
