It is not far from the borders with Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Connecticut. Explorers noted the area as early as 1609 but the first settlers came in 1709 and were mostly from Germany. By the...

    Patrick and I have begun to ice skate every other weekend or so. We absolutely love it. Due to the extremely mild winter we've had in NY, we've resorted to using one of the local ice areanas. Our favorite is Ice Time Sports Complex here in Newburgh. The have several public skate times, but we usually go on a Saturday or a Sunday from 2:00-3:45....

  • Disappointed Me

    $13 as of July 2014. This looked like a normal Denny's; but the food was not as good as usual and my waitress was not very friendly (bordering on rude) and was not very good at her job. Would not return here. Open 24 hours. Chicken Noodle Soup, Slow Cooked Pot Roast.

  • A Late Night Bite to Eat

    I have been to this diner twice; once with Liz, J&T and then just with Liz. We were on our way back from Mom's and Liz was starving so I decided to pull into the diner for a quick bite to eat. The place has the typical diner items and diner layout. When we walked in we couldn't believe how dead the place was. Only three other tables of customers....

  • Good Italian Food and Friendly Service

    Our first visit here was for Mother's Day dinner 2009(actually Saturday night and not actually Mother's Day). This place is a favorite of my Mother and her fiancee so we decided to take her here for dinner. From the outside the place didn't look like much but the inside was a warm and inviting dining room. We were seated at a nice table for six in...


    This is another one of those places to eat that I only go to out of convenience and the shear fact that the kids are going to find something to eat here that they will like. I have to admit that I once had a really tasty burger plate here. I also like the pomegranate margarita that they serve.


    I've been to this Applebee's location on several occasions and with several people. I've been here with my mom, my son, my ex-husband, my ex- boyfriend and my ex-boyfriend's brother and wife. I have to say that I mostly come to Applebee's because I am familiar with their menu and I know that there are things here that everyone in my family are...

  • So-So Food

    My mother in law is always raving about how much she likes this restaurant in Georgia, so when Richie and I got a gift card, we thought, what the heck, let's try it. Well we tried it and we were not very impressed. First of all, the place is way over crowded, especially given the quality of food. Secondly, it's way overpriced given the quality of...

  • Machu Picchu Peruvian Restaurant

    Real Peruvian food served in a home cooking style. The place was all pervian guest the day we visited and I got to know the family of 11 next to us who were very helpful. Tasty Soup including seafood soup and if you love beans and yucca -- this is the place lots of those.if you want something different from the Italian and American all around us in...

  • Dine on the Hudson River

    My VT friend moiraistyx that has lived in the Hudson Valley for some time not a newbee like me recommend this place -- very nice choice moiraistyx. In fact the Prime rib was very tasty and the “cool aquarium” was well a place to “Watch the fish”. With a wonderful view of the Hudson river and the town of beacon wayyyy across the wide river sort of...

  • Although Chianti's doesn't sit...

    Although Chianti's doesn't sit along the Hudson River and does not offer a view, it has and long been known as a four star Italian Cuisine restaurant. Its owner John Frontera is a very hospitable, generous and enterprising young man. He will do anything to make your stay pleasant worth your while. And ofcourse, the food is out of this world! Music...


Newburgh Transportation


    During the day light hours it's perfectly safe to walk around the city of Newburgh, however once the sun goes down, I don't recommend walking around the city of Newburgh. Newburgh has an extrememly high murder, drug and prostitution rate not to mention robberies, muggings, car break in etc. Stick to the water front if you insist on walking around,...


    Unless you're in the actually city of Newburgh, chances are you are going to have to drive from place to place. Most of the tourist attractions are pretty spaced out and the restaurants are scattered about.

  • The best way to get to and...

    The best way to get to and from Newburgh is by car or motorcycle. If you live in the east, just cross the Hudson via Newburgh-Beacon, Mid Hudson or Bear Mtn Bridges and you can get to Newburgh. You can even rid eyour bike into Newburgh on the Newburgh Beacon Bridge. The east bound span has a pedestrian walk to get across. You save a dollar too...

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: 1.Take a tour of its Historic District along Montgomery Street, Grand Street, and Liberty Street.
    2.Take a walk on the Newburgh/Beacon Bridge and take in the view of the Storm King Mountains and Beacon Mountain which border the Hudson River.
    3. Visit George Washington's Headquarters.
    4. Visit the waterfront eateries.
    5. Sit along the Hudson and watch the full moon come up behind the mountains or watch the sunrise along the river!

    Fondest memory: I am politically involved so when Mayor Audrey Carey became the first female black mayor in the STATE OF NEW YORK, I was ecstatic! I felt like had ownership of this beautiful city and could help it along its path of rebirth! I also hold dear the many evenings I sat along the river with my boyfriend watching the moon rise behind the mountains and flames flicker from a fire he lit to fry the fish he had so proudly caught!
