Newburgh's "Last Chance": The Elusive Promise of Urban Renewal in a Small and Divided City (Article)
Title: Newburgh's "Last Chance": The Elusive Promise of Urban Renewal in a Small and Divided City
Author: Ann Pfau
Author: Stacy Sewell
Abstract: This article is a case study of failure at the federal, state, and local levels. In 1956, Newburgh, New York, undertook an ambitious, arguably oversized, urban renewal program. Between 1962 and 1974, city officials successfully cleared roughly 120 acres of prime waterfront real estate for redevelopment, displacing a largely black population. But combined with economic recession and changing federal and state policies, conflict between and among white city officials and black residents prevented reconstruction. Newburgh’s greatest asset was its scenic waterfront and historic architecture. Clearance of the former led to destruction of the latter, which remains largely empty even today.
