Stay safeEdit

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.

The only reason to go to Newburgh is the bars and restaurants along the waterfront, or the Newburgh Brewery which is only a couple block from the waterfront. Leaving the waterfront area effectively means you're walking straight into the worst parts of the Bronx or Brooklyn, since that's where most of the residents of Newburgh came from, and they brought their crime with them. Don't be fooled by it's small size, Newburgh is absolutely ridden with gang activity and drug-fueled crime, and a quick look around you in much of city at the gang signs spray-painted on buildings, barbed wire fences, and bars on windows will be more than enough evidence to suggest this.
