What a Mayor Can Do

Here's some news from Newburgh, where the challenges are greater but the response from city government has always, in my opinion, been light-years ahead of Hudson's when it comes to historic preservation: "Good news breaks out in Newburgh." It's about the Newburgh Community Land Bank--a plan and a promise from Newburgh mayor Judy Kennedy to rescue vacant buildings, stabilize them, and sell them to people who want to live in them. 

I borrowed the photograph that accompanies this post from the National Trust for Historic Preservation website. You may want to check it out to see what Habitat for Humanity is doing in Newburgh.
