Newburgh has so many delicious restaurants. I suggest that we do a first ever Newburgh Community day. It should start with a 5K and at the finish line have all the local restaurants or vendors selling their products like a huge block party.
I am looking for information on a home that was featured in the “Rescue Me” column. The address is 250 Liberty Street. It is not listed for sale and its not on the list of City-owned properties. Can anyone tell me how I can get more information?
Thanks very much,
I have found this website to be a terrific resource and look forward to “Picture of the Week”, Real Estate section, etc. I am currently engaged via email with the City of Newburgh with purchasing a city owned property. I am currently waiting for inspection times on two available properties. Does anyone have any practical advice/tips with engaging with the city? Thanks in advance.
I’m a graduate student at Columbia University and I’m interested in some of the public health issues in Newburgh such as lead contamination in housing. I see this problem as a consequence of various economic and social factors and so I’m trying to understand this issue from a broader context. I’ve heard about a lot of really amazing things happening in Newburgh such as the community garden and the Newburgh urban market, and I’m really interested in getting a a sense of how people feel Newburgh is doing. Obviously there are many problems such as high poverty and high crime, but is there a general sense that Newburgh is starting to come back? I’ve only visited Newburgh a few times, but it seems to me like many positive changes are happening, which is awesome because the city has so much to offer.
Hello, my name is Yoo-Nah. I’m a junior at Barnard College, Columbia University in NYC, and I was just wondering if there were any suggestions and/or opportunities for summer internships or jobs in Newburgh. I am actually a native of Newburgh, NY – I was born at St. Luke’s Hospital, grew up in Milton, and my dad owns a small business right on Broadway. Although I am not a stranger to Newburgh and the problems the city has been facing for years, I have always felt a little bit of an outsider having attended schools outside of the area. This hasn’t kept me from feeling a pull to go back to Newburgh and start something though, and following the different happenings recently through Newburgh Restoration has inspired me tremendously. Although I’m a liberal arts major with very little technical skills, I am open to all different opportunities and enjoy learning about almost anything. I look forward to hearing from anyone with helpful thoughts/opinions/suggestions! Thank you.
It would be nice to start creating a list of contractors for any of you that have had positive experiences so newcomers can know who to turn to when restoring their homes. Feel free to add your suggestions!
Question from a reader:
Wondering if anybody can recommend a moving company coming from Brooklyn to Newburgh?? Just thought there maybe someone on here who has done it recently? thanks in advance, Rosemary
I am interested in discovering Newburgh and would like to stay in town a few days. I am looking for hotels and or B&Bs. Interested in a tour, checking out the new businesses and real estate. Any help / recommendations?
I am a city planning graduate student and I am writing my thesis on Newburgh and the intersection of heritage and planning. I am interested to know what community members think could be done in the city of Newburgh to better serve the community and connect with Newburgh’s heritage, especially in the next stage of waterfront development. I would love to know your thoughts…
This podcast is extremely relevant to the future of economics, if for nothing else it helps us analyze our current economic environment. This is extremely relevant to Newburgh, in my opinion. Fighting out of poverty via a mix of jobs and new age/modern community self-sustainability.
Talking with Frithjof Bergmann, Prof. Emeritus from U. of Michigan, Ann Arbor about his book New Work, New Culture (2004, English release coming soon).
Frithjof is a world-renowned ex-Hegel/Nietzsche scholar who has worked since the early 80s on projects to realize the goal of “New Work,” which is an alternative to the current, dysfunctional job system. New Work enables people to do work (which is not the same as a “job”) that they really, really want. Human nature is not such that we are born free and need restraining by a social contract; rather, we need institutions to help us develop a self, to figure out what we really want and become free by doing things that we deeply identify with. New Work Enterprises promotes technology like fabricators and cutting-edge farming to support community self-sufficiency in places like Detroit that the job system has left behind.

I’m coming up from the city this Saturday to check out some of the artists participating in the open studio tour. Any recommendations of favorite artists to check out?
I’m not a Newburgh resident but have been increasingly interested in exploring places up along the Hudson to settle in and perhaps create a live/work situation. I’ve visited Newburgh a few times and I feel there has been a lot of growth in recent years. While brainstorming on business ideas I figured I’d put it out there to the locals and see what sort of new services you are looking for? What types of businesses are missing from Newburgh that might do well for the community?
Thanks in advance for any feedback!
