The City of Newburgh, approximately 60 miles north of New York City, is a transportation hub for the lower Hudson Valley. The ever-growing Stewart International Airport is here, and convenient access to Interstate 84 and the New York State Thruway (Interstate 87), along with a Metro-North station, has fueled Newburgh’s growth over the past two decades. The town features abundant historical interest (Newburgh was the headquarters of George Washington’s Continental Army from 1782 to 1783) and architecture, featuring buildings designed by Calvert Vaux, Andrew Jackson Downing and Frederick Law Olmstead. But the future is promising as well. New businesses have sprouted on historic Liberty Street, near Washington’s Headquarters, including an art supply store, a gourmet food market, an antique store, a used furniture shop, a souvenir shop, a flower shop, a bakery and a restaurant. More redevelopment of housing and infrastructure is in the works.
