Get to know Newburgh

Newburgh is an old city with a young soul. Nestled along the west shore of the Hudson River near the confluence of I-84 and the New York State Thruway, it’s a place of art studios in converted factory lofts, modern corporate offices, and historic riverfront neighborhoods, set before the fjord-like backdrop of Storm King Mountain and the rippling waters below. Cross the Newburgh-Beacon Bridge from Dutchess County and you might spot the ornate, bracketed gables of the town’s most notable residences—several are attributed to Calvert Vaux, partner of Frederic Law Olmsted and whose mentor, Newburgh native Andrew Jackson Downing, was dubbed “the father of American landscape architecture.” In town, you’ll find a growing number of Brooklynesque eateries and maker shops mingling with time-tested classics. Whether you’re sipping locally-brewed kombucha along Broadway or hosting a backyard barbecue with a view, you’ll know you’ve made a wise move.

Living in Orange County

Don’t call this one “the OC.” New York’s Orange County sits in the state’s Mid-Hudson region, bookended by Putnam and Dutchess Counties to the east and the Delaware River to the west. It’s the northern end of the Great Valley formed by the Appalachian Mountains, capped by the Ramapo Mountains as they escalate towards the Catskills. This dramatic landscape proved naturally advantageous in the American Revolution, which led to the founding of the United States Military Academy at West Point. Today, the attractions are anything but singular: Orange County plays host to some of the highest-profile cultural and entertainment destinations in the Hudson Valley, including Storm King Art Center, Woodbury Commons, Angry Orchard Cidery, and the soon-to-open LEGOLAND® New York Resort. Between them lie charming villages, verdant apple orchards, and rural hilltops prime for a socially-distant retreat by choice. I-84, Metro-North’s Port Jervis Line, and Stewart International Airport open gateways to destinations near and far.
