Newburgh is a city in New York.
Washington's Headquarters, 84 Liberty St. The Hasbrouck House, which is part of the headquarters, was George Washington's longest-serving headquarters during the American Revolution.
Karpeles Manuscript Museum, 94 Broadway. The world's largest private collection of manuscripts and documents is spread between the Karpeles' 11 museums.
The Wherehouse, 119 Liberty St. Large selection of craft beers; extensive pub food menu. (Sandwiches, burgers, wings, etc.) Draws a hipper and more laid-back crowd than some of Newburgh's other bars.
Pineapple Larry's, 44 Grand St. Usually slow earlier on, they really fill up after midnight.
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.
