Newburgh, New York Info Snack

Newburgh /nubr/ is a city located in Orange County, New York, United States, 60 miles (97 km) north of New York City, and 90 miles (140 km) south of Albany, on the Hudson River. Newburgh is a part of the New York CSA. The Newburgh area was first settled in the early 18th century by the Germans and British. During the American Revolution, Newburgh served as the headquarters of the Continental Army. Prior to its chartering in 1865, the city of Newburgh was part of the town of Newburgh; the town now borders the city to the north and west. East of the city is the Hudson River; the city of Beacon, New York is across the river; and it is connected to Newburgh via the Newburgh–Beacon Bridge. The entire southern boundary of the city is with the town of New Windsor. Most of this boundary is formed by Quassaick Creek. In May 2016, the city requested help for its PFOS contaminated water supply under Superfund.

Crime is out of control. Blacks commit almost 100% of the homicides. The city is overrun by black gangs who deal drugs, control prostitution, and commit heinous acts of violence.

Newburgh is a dumping ground for s*x-offenders released from NYS DOCS. Broadway in Newburgh is littered with derelicts and pedophiles and looks like something out of a movie.

If you look at the previous review of Newburgh you will see that one of the biggest problems with this city is racism. To suggest that 100 percent of the homicides in Newburgh are committed by blacks is absurd especially considering that the MAFIA is centered there. Is the mafia now all black these days- No one told me. Huh, must have missed that.

That last reviewer can eat me.
