History[edit]

Newburgh was a dynamo. A walk down any street will show that; even debilitated, barren homes were once the beautiful residences of a prosperous city. Most living people are ignorant of the great docks that studded the shore upon which goods were shipped from the ports of the world into the Ohio Valley (and visa verse), ships were built, passengers were transported from Newburgh to the world (and visa verse). Plank and toll roads fanned out from Newburgh, playing a huge part in the settlement of Western New York and what used to be the Western Reserve. In order to have fallen so far, the apex must have been high. The history section of the article is thin indeed, perfunctory, and doesn't impart that past dynamism. The section on just the fire department revivals the whole history section, for gosh sakes. Instead of describing the importance of this great city, the article is mired in recent politics. At least a few pre-1900 historical figures made it into the notable people list. Wordreader (talk) 06:16, 22 July 2012 (UTC)


Dear Sir or Madam:

I would like to thank you very much for maintaining the Wikipedia along with the interesting information and facts about Newburgh. I found it both knowledgeable and enlightening. However, in your sports section I saw no mention of the boy’s track team who has won 10 National Championships and over 20 state championships while, producing over 90 track and Field High School All Americans. The boys track teams Alumni’s who moved on to completion higher include: Randy Patterson (Class of 2010 at Mississippi State), Aaron Steele (Class of 2007 Florida State University) Jarrell Warren (Class of 2006 Oklahoma State University), David Mc Fadgen III (Class of 2006 North Carolina A&T University), and Samry Laine (Class of 2002 Harvard University, University of Texas, and Georgetown University of Law Center). Samry Laine became Newburgh’s first Olympian, as he placed 10th in the triple jump during the 2012 London Olympics Games .

     Please find these Newburgh Boys Track and Field accomplishes worthy and post them in your Newburgh Wikipedia. Many thanks in advance, and also feel free to contact me at any time if you have any question on any of these listed accomplishments.

Things like that are better off in the article about the school, in this case NFA. Daniel Case (talk) 05:08, 25 July 2014 (UTC)

St. Mary's[edit]

I have added material about St. Mary's since it has now merged with St. Pats lest the information be much harder to find in a few years, which seems to happen when parishes are no longer separate entities. It would be a shame to lose that part of the city's history, although it should probably be split into a separate article. Mannanan51 (talk) 23:12, 8 October 2015 (UTC)

Category reversal- small point[edit]

Daniel Case reverted [https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Newburgh_%28city%29,_New_York&oldid=prev&diff=722452924 adding a category here

I think I see the argument from the point of the point source. (Your edit summary of reverting my categorization of Newburgh "we should add this to Lake Washington")

However, I am thinking not only of what Case indicates is the source of the contamination Lake Washington. My argument is that it is equally important to denote a community of exposure ( people and all ).

I dont know Daniel Case, sense fierceness but hoping he/others can see my point and resolve teh conflict civilly. --Wuerzele (talk) 13:38, 30 May 2016 (UTC)
