Stay safe[edit]

Newburgh consistently ranks as one of the highest-crime cities in New York per capita. Much of the city -- especially the eastern half of it -- is blighted and tough-looking, full of abandoned rowhouses. Robbery and assault rates are very high compared to the rest of the state and the country, and there's a lot of drug activity too. It's a small city; wherever you go, even in nicer parts of Newburgh, you're only a few blocks from a higher-crime area. Use the same common-sense precautions you would in any city, and then some.
