Newburgh, New York
I don't know how many times I've driven past, or through, Newburgh on Interstate 84, heading for parts west, but somehow I'd never made a point of getting off the highway to look at the small city. Then I finally went for a look early on a Monday morning, 8/12/19.
I encountered this couple on Broadway just a few blocks from the Hudson River shore. They noticed my camera and asked what I was taking pictures of. As always I replied, "anything interesting." "So how about us?" "Sure, you want to be in a picture?" Then they acted out a little dramatic scene. The guy said he wanted to be photographed alone, then called for her to join him, but then hid her face with his hand so she wouldn't "break the lens."
She took mock umbrage at this insult and yelled at him while he laughed because he'd heard the shutter and knew I'd gotten the previous picture.
Then they posed for real. I gave them a card with my email and told them if they send me an message I'll reply with their pictures, but I haven't heard from them.
As always, you can get a much better look at the pictures than you see on this front page, if you click on them.

Continuing on down the block on West Clay Street, more semi-derelict buildings and a constant battle with taggers.
There's a Home Depot at the south end of this shopping center. Here at the north end there's a PetSmart. The other half of this building used to be a Sports Authority but it closed down about a year ago and the large retail space remains vacant.

Plastic bottles are everywhere.
Construction and restoration work on St. Anne's church makes for pretty strange looking black shrouded towers, plus an exoskeleton of scaffolding.
Latin market across from the church.
Derelict building just down the block from the busy market.

More weeds and bricks.
The side yard of a church, under a hot muggy summer sky.
Graffiti, derelict (but quite modern/recent) factory building.
Minerva street, the same steep hill seen in earlier post.

Hot, wet, summer day with big clouds forming. Derby is on the right, Shelton on the left, looking north from the bridge between them over the Housatonic River. The chimneys are from old riverside factory complexes that are either derelict or repurposed.
The corner of Third Street.
Brick wall and doorway with graffiti.
