Sometimes finding one’s destiny is as simple as placing a compass on a map and drawing a circle. That’s how printer Luke Ives Pontifell wound up moving his company, Thornwillow Press, to Newburgh, NY, a city only 55 miles north of Manhattan.

Pontifell had been looking for a place to consolidate his limited edition, custom book and stationery business, which was spread across the world in England, Florida and the Czech Republic. One day, his wife drew a one-hour radius around their home in NYC, and they set off visiting locations in Connecticut and Pennsylvania. Nothing felt quite right until, guided by the New York State Economic Development Corporation, they arrived in Newburgh and came upon a massive 19th-century warehouse that used to function as a coat factory.
