URBAN ARCHIVE NEWBURGH
URBAN ARCHIVE’S FIRST EXPANSION OUTSIDE OF NEW YORK CITY
Situated 60 miles north of New York City, Newburgh NY is the second largest historic district in New York State with architectural styles representing three centuries. Local institutions in the Hudson Valley have now begun to make their rich photographic collections publicly accessible, utilizing Urban Archive’s digital platform to tell their stories: the important intersections of architecture, preservation, place, and community.
Through this new partnership, Newburgh residents and visitors can use the Urban Archive mobile app to interact with Newburgh’s history where it happened through archival photos and special features such as curated walking tours, audio tours, and DIY then-and-now photo recreations.
For the initial launch, five Hudson Valley collaborative partners have added over 200 images of historic Newburgh for users to explore.
