"Relax by the River and Enjoy Great Music in Beautiful New Windsor"

New Windsor, serving 25,244 people in Orange County, is located near the town of Newburgh and is the site of the last documented (and well preserved) encampment of the Revolutionary war. It is famed for the many Purple Hearts given to soldiers and medics by George Washington here, and the National Purple Heart Hall of Honor commemorates these diligent, dedicated soldiers who risked their lives to help others, going well beyond and above the call of duty to help their fellow soldiers.

Aside from a very safe community, New Windsor is near the Stewart International Airport in Newburgh and is very affordable (housing costs start around $180,000). Both residents and visitors to New Windsor can enjoy the scenic Hudson River from its shores at Plum Point Park, where you can see both Newburgh and Cornwall Bays. In the summer, the town is famed for its Town Hall Band Stand concert series, and there’s free popcorn, Italian Ices and more for those who come to relax and enjoy the music. For working out, join the Sportsplex Fitness Center where you’ll find state-of-the-art equipment, a pool, tennis courts, and your kids will be safe and well entertained at the gym’s children’s day care center. The town also offers a fitness “boot camp” for a fair price for adults, and seniors can enjoy fun group activities like Zumba and “Jazzercise” which helps cardiovascular productivity, and is just generally good for your health.

New Windsor has some very unique restaurants like Citrus NY (an Indian and Thai fusion restaurant), Not Just Salads (which has great sandwiches, ect.--hence the name), Panda Restaurant (Asian fusion), ABC Pizza, Gus’s Restaurant and Tavern has a great bar and grille and is rated 5 stars for fantastic food and friendly, helpful and thorough staff. The town of New Windsor also has a few shopping opportunities like Radio Shack, Hudson Valley Cigars, Baker’s Dozen bakery, and Anna’s Gift Shop.
