On Liberty Street, Washington’s Headquarters, the nation’s first publicly owned historic site, is bordered by quaint shops and cafes. Breathtaking Hudson River vistas can be seen from the Headquarters’ spacious grounds, as well as along the City’s main thoroughfare, Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Boulevard, and from the “Bluff” in Washington Heights.
A tour of Broadway and adjacent neighborhoods will provide not only a taste of Newburgh, but of cuisines from around the world. The City’s diversity is one of our greatest assets, and we commemorate it throughout the year with festivals, parades and celebrations.
We are an “artist-friendly” City, and are fortunate to have a diverse population of talented and creative people- from actors to sculptors and everything in between, who call the City of Newburgh home. Our “Last Saturday” Arts Along the Hudson events, including Newburgh “Open Studios,” draw visitors from all over the mid-Hudson region and beyond.
Our Hudson riverfront is lined with great restaurants and provides dockage for cruise boats that offer a variety of great trips out on the river.
We invite you to explore our history, our diversity, our art, our river and most of all, to meet our greatest natural resource, our people.
