If you’ve been seeing some work done to the old Warehouse Furniture Showroom on 17k it’s because something brand new will be coming to the 30,000 square foot building. Newburgh Vintage Emporium is expanding! It will feature vintage furniture and clothing, antiques, curiosities, re-purposed and locally made goods. There will be approximately 80 vendors. If you are interested in becoming a dealer, click here.

This is an exciting project as the Vintage Emporium located at the northern end of the city, just of the I-84 ramp, attracts many customers from near and far. Now the city will have a revamped shopping destination in the west end of the city. The owners have given their first location a fresh perspective. It will be exciting to see what they do on 17k!

WONDERFUL 1920’s HOME with RIVER & MOUNTAIN VIEWS! On historic 19th century Montgomery St, this lovely & well-cared-for home is a visual delight, both inside & out – whether it’s the Hudson River & Mt Beacon vistas, the magnificent neighborhood homes, or the original arts & crafts detail & craftsmanship throughout the home itself (gorgeous wood staircase, bordered wood floors, crown moldings, original doors/hardware, etc). 


In addition to its visual beauty, this home makes great use of interior space & feels larger inside than it looks from the outside – with wonderful entertaining spaces on the 1st and 2nd levels, a bathroom on each of the 3 floors, and top floor master suite with a river view from your bed. The front porch is great for relaxing and looking at the water and historic architectural treasures all around you & the large backyard has nice patio for dining/entertaining. 


Other conveniences include a driveway & ample garage space, walkable to the waterfront, schools, mass transit, dining & shopping and a strong community spirit on the block. Many more photos at the link below. Don’t miss this one!

When local photographer, Joshua Brown, asked if I’d like to share photos of a recent wedding he’d shot in Newburgh, my instant answer was “Yes”! Washington’s Headquarters proved to be the most breathtaking backdrop for a wedding ceremony – the autumn leaves, the Hudson River, and the golden rays of sunshine all gave this wedding a warmth that transmits through the photos.

After the ceremony Emma and Ricardo walked up to Liberty Street where they held their reception in a warehouse that normally isn’t used for wedding receptions. What an intimate and special affair.

Thank you Emma, Ricardo, and Joshua for sharing your photos. They are all at once inspiring and enchanting to see how the City of Newburgh can be the backdrop for a celebration of love. If you’d like to see a slideshow with more photos, click here.

A New York City based hair salon has opened a sister salon in Newburgh called Liberty and Beauty at 63 Liberty Street, near the corner of Spring Street. It is a full service salon that even offers curly cuts (my personal need). Owner, Liam Carey, has had his work shown in Elle, Marie Claire, Martha Stewart Weddings, Oprah, The Today Show and more.

For some of you seasoned Newburghers you might remember this location as the old Firemen’s Museum that never materialized. Since then, the storefront has seen a makeover, complete with an elbow sign to direct pedestrians into the salon.

Lower Liberty Street is seeing many new businesses occupying dormant and closed of spaces. If you love local, shop local and support Liberty and Beauty. They are also hiring! Congratulations Liam on your new venture.
