This is an interesting property close to the waterfront, on the edge of the Heights neighborhood. This is a quieter street, just a block away from Washington’s HQ, the Newburgh Brewery, and other potential projects. The fire damaged house across the street is being renovated by a couple, and The Foundry next door might be completed one day (do your research on that). Also, the empty lot diagonal to this property was supposed to be developed a few years ago. Those plans fell through, but the possibility is always still there. If everything came through for the 3 corners it might be worth it to put back the storefront that was probably here at one time.

The Regional Plan Association (RPA) in The Fourth Plan just released their vision for Newburgh in 2040. The city is envisioned to be a healthy and equitable city that is a gateway to the Hudson Valley. Here are some key points of their plan:
Partnership with St. Luke’s and MSMC for a buy local initiative, workforce development, and reciprocal capital and economic investments
Bus rapid transit will ease congestion on I-84 and connect the downtown to an expanded Stewart Airport and Metro North Station at Beacon
Anti-displacement measures and legal counsel for low-income residents.
Apartment buildings are created into affordable cooperatives or creation of community land trusts
Through inclusive planning and agreements, Newburgh will be home to people from many races, ethnic groups, and income levels
A network of open green spaces that include Snake Hill and Quassaick Creek
Green infrastructure technologies to reduce dependence on the city’s sewer system and protect the region’s water quality
The beauty of Newburgh homes is in the details. But what do you do when those details have been damaged? Sometimes homeowners choose not to repair or replace, and other times they go to great lengths to bring their houses back as close as they can. Erika Norton Urie had this exact situation when her original etched glass windowpane was smashed out in the house she is repairing.
“Our double front doors had one amazing etched glass windowpane and the other was smashed out. By luck, I was able to find an incredibly skilled glass craftsman who replicates these etched glass panes using the same wheel-cut and pulley method as was used to make the original panes. ReHo studios in Red Hook Brooklyn has been creating these works of art for all the historic homes in Brooklyn and Manhattan.
The Studio works with architectural and interior designers on original designs, reproduction and restoration of historic wheel-cut glass and lighting fixtures, as well as with individuals.”
