The place to meet people in Newburgh, Blacc Vanilla, had their grand opening this past weekend. The unusually warm October day was the perfect backdrop for their fall themed party. Live music and performances were held in the backyard garden. It was wonderful to see such a diverse crowd supporting owners, Melanie and J’Rod. Keep up the great work!

Quietly a storefront on the east side of Liberty Street has been taking shape. Once used as an office, and rarely ever seen open, neighbors are getting excited to see paper up in the windows of 110 Liberty Street. Inside a lifestyle boutique is nearing completion. Owner, Michael Carter is ready to start collaborating with other brands to get the shop up and running.
