Get the door, its the liquor store
You looking for the real New York experience? Look no further than Newburgh; it may be 60 miles north of... New York City, but it’s the real deal. “But isn’t NYC the real New York?” you ask. No. Remember that New York City contains less than half of the whole state’s population — most New Yorkers live north of NYC. Alright wise guy, so how does Newburgh summarize the state? For starters, it has that gritty vibe that makes New York City so New York-y. It’s a bit rough around the edges in places, but underneath the gruffness lies genuine warmth and love. Head to Billy Joel’s Ribworks to enjoy some northern BBQ. Look out over the Hudson River from the little city on a hill. Walk along Waterfront Trail or stroll through Downing Park. Take a look at the brick facades of Grand Street and Broadway. Or just lounge in the comfort of your sofa and whip out your phone. Type “Drizly” into the app store and download the app. Enter your address. Now find your favorite beer and order it. While you’re at it, find your favorite wines and liquors and order those as well. They’ll show up in 3,600 New York minutes (read: 60 minutes) or less.
