Having grown up in the city of newburgh, it sickens me to drive threw the area now. It seems as if nobody cares about our city anymore. It's more about the money that goes in the pockets of the greedy people who rent to people that don't want to take care of their thing's or the city! Something has to be done. Their's people selling dope on every and I MEAN EVERY street corner down there. Their children wander the street's while their parents sit there talking to their friends. I myself witnessed a girl that could be no more then 4 yrs old walking down the road by herself only to be screamed at by her mother a few minutes later.. TAKE CARE OF YOUR KIDS, TAKE CARE OF YOUR HOME OR GO BACK TO YOUR OWN COUNTRY! I AM SICK OF IT~! If Puerto Rico or jamaica was so beautiful why are you over here destroying our country?

THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!! Let's not blame all the landlords out there. After all, tenants don't have to live in shit. Where did all these people come from, who like to live in a toilet and create an outdoor cesspool for us all to avoid? I think that those of us who care are going to rise up and start beating the crap out of all the scumbags who are on public assistance and welfare. Get a job!

It has nothin to do with race. Trash like that in newburgh comes in all colors. Now there are good people there but face it newburgh is a drug haven. If anything blame the city council, they practically invited them when they raised the funds for welfare way back when. Now im not saying all people on welfare are bad but dopers and crackheads and "thugs" tend not to have alot of money. So if anyones to blame its the towns government.

I read these comments here and live in Newburgh for some time now. It is a mess. The police watch it go on and do nothing. I see drugs being dealt on every corner and if they rolled up on them all at once they could clean up a corner in a minute. I watch Yuppies pulling up in SUV's and drugs being handed over like it is a newspaper stand. I have been harrassed being told 'why did you stop buying from me and almost attacked" I have been attacked and robbed and the police did nothing. I never bought as he said and do not do drugs but he was demanding my money and following me from a store. They act as if they have cleaned something up. They pushed it off of Broadway to look good and the side streets are as bad as always or worse. Make less arrests and do less reports and it will all look good on paper. Even a simple camera placed on a rooftop would clean it all up. They don't want to they are corrupt. It is called Gentrification. They will clean it up when they are done buying it up.....just like in Beacon. They send criminals from the entire state here and support them fully with housing, food stamps, medical benifits....emergency whatever and then turn them loose with no money and no way to get to a job and they go right back to crime and drugs being sent to drug infested housing. They don't care who's lives are destroyed. Anyone who does try to do anything good here is a blight to the Cops as they have to do too much paperwork protecting them if they get down and dirty involving themselves with the community or giving jobs! Trust me if you do, a lot of stuff is bound to happen to you giving a job to a person no one else will. How else would anyone start over????
Ask any store owner in the area and they will tell you mostly that if they call the police they get treated like the criminal. There was even a case in the paper where they attempted to arrest the store owner after his many calls to police for help. There is a lot of police brutality and false arrests in Newburgh yet i find nothing on the net reguarding it..........WHY. Political cover ups! One of the only local parks in the city that I know of is still fenced off as it is next to a Police sub-station. A building burned next to it and they did not isolate the building they isolated it with the park leaving children to break in it with giant nails sticking out of boards. These children have nothing to do and nowhere to go and don't stand a chance!

Well said - and totally correct - the only way to reclaim poor newburgh is to bring in mayor guiliani to kick some butt - and they should start with that corruptnewburgh coaltion

Liz is right - anyone BORN here is a native american (native means indigenous)- and the Indians camefrom some other place too unless you think that God put them here when He made Adam and Eve - the issue isnt immigration - its personal responsibilty for your lives and your kids

Part of the problem is that so many people ran as soon as the "Puerto Ricans and Jamaicans" arrived. What you really mean to say is those Nig....r and Spics. Why are you living in Cornwall. Why don't you live here and beautify the area. The real problem is that So Many people are making their money on renting slum apartments to "Those People". Those same landlords are sending their kids to NYU and Harvard. Their are many of "Us",I am refering to the Puerto Ricans, Mexicans, Jamaicans, Haitians...etc. that are hard working, don't let our Kids hang on the Street and are College Educated. Unfortunately you live in Cornwall and have not had the opportunity to meet some of us.

You know what? A lot of the trouble today is coming from people who think they're Newburghers but want to call themselves Newburghians. They come in here because they think we're a bunch of backwater idiots, tell us what's wrong with this place, do nothing to make anything better, buy property, let it rot, make their money, call us idiots and fools and then post complaints all over the place. They get their picture in the papers with some story about how much wonderful crap they're doing for the place written by some bought out fool who came from someplace else too. Meanwhile our old buildings are gone, the government is sitting on their heads being bought out too and the only hope for Newburghers is to leave! Like somebody said here, we can all just leave, hope the rest of them kill each other off and when the dust settles maybe we can come back and rebuild the way it was when Newburgh was the industrial and business capital of the Hudson Valley. Anybody remember those days?

lets not not forget the days before newburgh giving all attention to the waterfront. why is there a liquor store and bar on every corner in newburgh? black and hispanic or latino people did not put them there also they did not bring guns into the united states either so what is going on?

There used to be a hell of a lot more bars in town and a hell of a lot less crime. Different people. Different mentalities. Class. That's what's missing now. What makes you believe Blacks and Latinos didn't put the liquor stores there? They know how to make the best money in town and they know who's gunna support them. So they open businesses that their own people will frequent, and they do! Guns? How many "Virginia" plates do you see on the cars in town? Or are you implying that they're coming from the city council?

if somebody's living in a neighborhood or town or whatevuh, I'd say they don't need research. so what's wrong with you 'say nothing'? Besides, E. Elmhurst has a lot of something Newburgh has none of: dignity.
