A pleasing mix of agricultural, country charm and suburban amenities, Newburgh has become known as the “Crossroads of the Northeast” for its prime transportation connections and close proximity to major thoroughfares. A scattering of businesses and light industry add local employment opportunities, although most of the area’s economic activity is focalized in an area known as the Northeast Business Center with its cluster of modern industrial parks. The affordable and attractive housing selection reflects the artistry of the past but also includes contemporary styling and modern construction. Local retail shops and services combine with a fine seasonal array of farmer’s markets. Nearby recreational amenities include lush parks for picnics, hiking trails, lake fishing, sports facilities, wilderness areas, hiking trails, hills for cross-country skiing and sledding, country clubs with premier facilities, stables, and community centers.
