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’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!
I’m looking at buying in Newburgh ( living in purchase)in 2018. I’m an artist, currently in Brooklyn who is familiar with Newburgh (my family having had property in Orange County most of my life) and I’m looking to bring my studio and residence to Newburgh, to become part of the community and be part of the wonderful things I’ve seen in person and here on this site happening.
I’m pretty sure that there must be at least one organization in town that helps guide the 1st time homebuyer and the revitalize Newburgh movement ( and maybe one for artists wanting to relocate there?). I’m hoping that you all here can give me a name or organization that I can reach out to so that I can start setting up meetings to gain more info.
Looking forward to 2018, becoming part of the community and moving my photography and ceramics practice/studio to Newburgh.
Any info will be of help – so thanks in advance!

Hello Newburgh Restoration Community!
I’m heading to Newburgh in early October from Los Angeles, and looking for a short term sublet while I get settled and figure things out and look for a permanent residence.
I’m a chef. Moving to Newburgh from Los Angeles.
Looking for a private, temporary furnished space. Maybe for a couple of months while I get settled and move my belongings from CA.
I’m very quiet, private, clean and responsible/headache free.
I’m also open to a permanent situation if I find the right place. Once settled, I’ll be looking for a private residence with outdoor space.
I’d appreciate any leads and/or advice.
I’m an artist (new to Newburgh) and I’m looking for about 400 red bricks to use for a new sculpture. I’d like real clay brick (not pavers, not concrete), old ones are great, from the Hudson valley would be ideal, but not required. Any leads would be most appreciated!
I am in the middle of making a home purchase in Newburgh and should be closing within a few weeks.
The home I am buying is currently a legal two family but was a three family at some point and in the historical district.I am planning on living in one unit, my son in another,and would like to rent out the third. Does anyone happen to know how I would go about having the home converted back to a legal three family? Has anyone had any experience with this? If so, how difficult was the process with the city?
I appreciate any feedback.
Maybe a long shot of a question, but do any of you have any information regarding 318 Grand St.? It’s being sold by the bank, as-is, and they aren’t disclosing any info. It looks partially rehabbed, but obviously still a lot more to go. Maybe one of you has some intel that could enlighten a potential buyer? Of course I would get a contractor to inspect it before purchasing, but if anyone has anything to share before that expense I would be grateful. Again, I realize that may be a long shot, but figured I’d ask!
Hi, I am looking to move to Newburgh and wondering if any of you have run into issues with insuring a historic home?
I’m looking for a bicycling group that meets up maybe once a week for rides in the Newburgh area. Moderate to semi-quick pace.
