The site, formerly part of a commercial property that housed the Weisblatt’s electrical contracting firm, is large enough for six attached row houses, an architectural style appropriate for the neighborhood.

Many long-standing institutions are within walking distance: the Glenn Hines Center which houses the Boy’s & Girl’s Clubs and many after school programs, Newburgh Free Library, Newburgh Post Office, Mount Saint Mary College, Downing Park, and many area churches.
