Arts Adventures in Newburgh

from the Artsology series The Arts Adventurer

I met up with my college roommate in Newburgh, New York, in order to hang out and visit a motorcycle museum there. In addition to seeing the vintage motorcycles, I later went out on my own to further explore street art and architecture throughout Newburgh. The city of Newburgh sits on the west side of the Hudson River, about 60 miles north of New York City. It's an interesting place to explore, as the city was a thriving industrial area in the early-to-mid 20th Century, but now has a lot of abandoned homes and buildings - which in my opinion, hinted at potential for revival.
