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

Snow plowing?

Does anyone have a good plowing/snow shoveling service for the City of Newburgh? I’ve called 30+ places, but haven’t had any bites. Thanks!

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.

Housing + gardens in Newburgh

Hi there!

My boyfriend and I are thinking of investing in real estate in Newburgh (we’re thinking of being the live in super/landlords). I’ve been really inspired by real estate cooperatives in NYC, communal living spaces and co-ops that create and make use of the green spaces around their properties to provide food and other services to their residents (the Kelly Street Garden in the Bronx comes to mind). This might be a big lift, but seems like an exciting and worthwhile project to take on in Newburgh.
So my question is: Is anything like this happening already in Newburgh? Are there community gardens or urban farms that I can visit? Who should I be talking to?

We’re hopefully coming up to visit on February 10th, so I’d love to check out what’s happening and learn more.
Thanks!

NYC Commuters

Hi all,

I’m interested in relocating from New Jersey to Newburgh in 2018. I’m a freelancer with most of my ongoing gigs being in New York City. I’m looking to hear from people about the commute and if there are any tips/local tidbits I should be aware of ahead of time.

I know the Beacon train is probably the most popular option, but anyone out there utilize Shortline on a consistent basis? How packed is it at the 6a/7a/8a hour?

Does anyone drive to a park and ride to get to the city? Are there any that are particularly better than others?

Lastly, and only mildly related, are there any bikers out there who commute to public transit hubs via bicycle? How realistic is this in Newburgh and from what neighborhoods? It’s not a deal breaker, but the option would be nice.

Thanks for the insight!
