Let’s take a look at some Newburgh apartments for rent and figure out exactly what’s going on in this city.
Newburgh is located on the Hudson River about 60-miles north of New York City and 90-miles south of Albany. Its location on the Hudson Line of Metro North makes it a great locale for commuters. It’s also got a lot of cheap apartments when compared to nearby commuter cities.
Whole swaths of the city have undergone recent renovations courtesy of local civic groups and Habitat for Humanity. Liberty Street, the main downtown thoroughfare has recently seen development in shops and restaurants.
The downtown waterfront area is home to several new apartment rentals and condominiums with lovely views and tons of amenities, including gyms, pools and clubhouses. You’ll also be able to find studio apartments and furnished apartments in this area. Two bedrooms here go for $1000-$1200.
Go west past the city center and you’ll find neighborhoods with tons of great apartment rentals in the area adjacent to the Newburgh Shopping Center and Delano-Hitch Park. There’s a good variety of old, renovated rental homes and newer construction around there with wondrously cheap rents. Two bedrooms here range from $800 to $1000.
Some of the best Newburgh real estate exists outside of city limits in the surrounding hamlets of Gardnertown and Balmville. These areas tend to be newer and better maintained. Two bedrooms in these areas range from $1000-$1200.
Newburgh is largely a renter’s market. So, if you’re looking for a place with a short-term lease, many landlords are open to accommodating qualified renters. Additionally, finding pet friendly apartments isn’t too difficult. Some places may have size or weight limitations, but overall, many apartments are pet friendly.
