Newburgh 1992 versus now
I went to college in Newburgh from 1988-92, and took a drive through the city this weekend.
Thinking about coming back to the Hudson Valley, and am considering renting in Newburgh.
I was happy to feel all the new energy and see so much that has changed in the city and for the good. Was wondering if people could recommend real estate agencies that deal in rentals, or particular neighborhoods that might be good if you are just settling back in. I live in Boston now, and had mobile work that took me all over the city, so I’m open to neighborhoods. Just curious about the layout of the city (I don’t remember from way back then) and what’s going on in each neighborhood. I have a car so I’d need street parking or to find a lot that rents out off street.
Thanks for your help. I’m interested in being in Newburgh for what it is. It actually reminded me of Dorchester in Boston which is eclectic and has a variety of neighborhoods.

Housing + gardens in Newburgh
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.
I am wondering if there is a bike shop in the Newburgh/Beacon/New Windsor area that rents decent 12+ speed road bikes for the day.
I’m looking for any information/anyone with experience or expertise in sustainable energy restoration of a home/house in Newburgh. Geothermal, solar energy etc…
Does anyone know from this forum whether there are any plans in the future for a supermarket to open in Newburgh? Hard to believe that theres not one in town.
Replacing/restoring etched glass windows
I’m so excited that my husband and I will be closing on hour future home on Lander Street shortly. It’s a lovely little gem and we are excited about making our new home in Newburgh. Two of the interior doors have a pane of the original etched glass broken out and thankfully one panel from each door remains. Are there craftsmen or glass artisans who can replicate historic etched glass panels that can be recommended?
