Victorian restoration

Hi friends,
I am looking for someone to restore some (exterior) posts on a Victorian. I found a business about 45-60 minutes from Newburgh that does custom work on a lathe. But I need someone who can actually do the work (carpenter). Be glad to have them supervise and handle the whole job.
THANK YOU.

We’re thrilled to be moving to Newburgh but have details to clarify. Does anyone have a good surveyor and property insurance agent they’ve worked with and would recommend? Many thanks and happy holidays!

Newburgh Candlelight Tour

The Historical Society of Newburgh Bay and the Highlands will be holding its annual Candlelight Tour on the second Sunday of December, Dec. 9th. It will begin at the Crawford House which is traditionally decorated with wonderful wreaths, garlands, and other greens and flowers typical of the 19th Century, the period when Capt. David Crawford built the house—1830—and lived there with his wife and two children. We are currently looking for other homeowners to share their homes with members of the public who so enjoy this annual event. The people on our tour are so appreciative of homeowners who open up their historic or architecturally interesting homes in the Newburgh area for one day from noon to 5:00. It is very much a family affair as most of the people on the tour have been coming to us for years, often bringing their friends along with them. We feel it is one of the great events in Newburgh, showing its historic side, its charming houses and the gracious hospitality of our homeowners.
So if you own an interesting or unique or historic home and would like to share in this wonderful experience (as I have, twice) please contact me, and I will be sure to get back with you soon. Or, if you know someone whom you feel might be interested, let me know as well or have that person contact me.
Thanks, Warren Cahill, Tour Co-ordinator,,jwcahill716@gmail.com

Construction Waste Removal

Taylor Montgomery recently jacked up their prices for dumpsters by $200 or more for Newburgh. I’m not sure why, but it seems like they’re exploiting a lack of other options. Does anyone have anyone else for construction waste removal and dumpsters? Any help is greatly appreciated!

Fire escape removal?

Hi there,

Has anyone had any luck petitioning the city to let them take down an old fire escape? We own a three family with two fire escapes, and they’re both falling apart and practically hanging off the building. I know in NYC you have to install a sprinkler in the inner staircase for egress in order to remove a fire escape legally. Not sure if the same rule applies in Newburgh?

Thanks

Dozers plowed forward but development didn't?

The dozers plowed their way through back then to make way for development of the downtown and riverfront area of Newburgh. All that happened was that one might as well say, a storm blew in and destroyed all the downtown and riverfront areas. There would be plans to rebuild a better, newer part of Newburgh. But as we all know, still, is that nothing really happened at all. The little that was done was half (m)assed and flying way below where it once was on that flag pole(so to speak). Urban Renewal Project was a crock and money must have been made for all of those responsible for the demise of Lower Newburgh. Reparations should be made to the city and the remaining survivors who were displaced back then from this fiasco. Reparation. It was intentional and for all the wrong reasons by the wrong people for this to have happened. I’m sorry that this is more of a rant than anything positive as others may post ideas of how Newburgh is coming back again. Do you see it? I sure know what I see now!! The government should fix what they f–reaked up. ehm.
