I received the following amazing "comment" to my blog  describing New Windsor Cantonment in New Windsor, New York, It contains important current information, so I am forwarding the comment along to those who have an interest in American history and the New York area. I'm sure the author, Michael J. Clark, New Windsor Cantonment Historic Site Manager, will not mind my quoting his comments in full. There is a lot of specific information that I fear I could not do justice to with paraphrasing. I hope many history buffs have the time to take advantage of this date sensitive information. Have a great time!"Thank you very much Rosario for the kind comments.  New Windsor Cantonment is about to celebrate the start of its 225th anniversary this month.  On Sunday October 21, we'll host a visit fr...

Townhouse communities have evolved from what some considered to be "first time" home ownership to resort-like havens with luxurious clubhouses and lifestyle amenities that include full maintenance of the exterior with snow removal from the driveways and walkways, manicured landscaping around the homes in addition to superb convenience to commuter transit, shopping and schools. Two communities that match the modern needs of townhouse buyers are now for sale and set to take Orange County NY Real Estate by storm. Brighton Green - Brighton Green is a new townhouse community in the town of Newburgh, NY. I have visited this community well over a dozen times in the past year or so and for good reason. There are four models to choose from with the Aylesford, 1,751 sq.ft. (approximate), priced f...

New Windsor Cantonment in New Windsor New York is the site of General George Washington's last winter encampment of the American Revolutionary War. From October 1872 to April of 1783, General George Washington and 7,000 others (troops and camp follower women and children) called the close to 600 log cabins built on the site home. It was here that General George Washington issued the cease fire order on April 19, 1783 that officially ended the US War of Independence.Today's visitor is treated to demonstrations performed by staff costumed like their 1783 counterparts. Soldiers practice musket drills, medical personnel demonstrate medical techniques, blacksmiths form metal objects, and others perform day to day activities of the period.  Also on site is the National Purple Heart Hall of Ho...

Drury Lane, our little, meandering 3 mile road which runs between Route 207 and Route 17K is not so little anymore. Over the last several months, the State Department of Transportation has been working diligently to prepare this road to make easy access to the NYS Thruway from Rt. 84, as well as easier access into Stewart International Airport.This long planned, and hard fought renovation is nearing completion and the newly relocated Drury Lane was "opened" in early August. "Opened" meaning that one lane is open, with many delays because of continuing construction.County Road 54, which is commonly called South Drury Lane, no longer runs through to Rt. 207.  It is now a cul-de-sac and ends just short of Charlestown Road.  Unfortunate for the new gas station at that corner which enjoyed s...

With the current problems in the mortgage industry, an FHA Mortgage could be a viable alternate for buyers today. Including buyers who would like to purchase a condominium. Most agents are aware of the fact that the FHA will finance a 1 to 4 family dwelling. Well, FHA will also finance a condominium. The condo must be located in an FHA approved condominium project or development. The lender must be an approved FHA lender, such as a mortgage company, bank, or savings and loan association. Any creditworthy potential buyer who meets FHA underwriting criteria and will make the condominium unit their principal residence is eligible.Even if the condominium project or development is not approved by FHA, a single condo unit in that project or development may still be financed with an FHA mortga...
