Join us in reimagining Lake Street & Muchattoes Lake as a place to visit, to stay, and to enjoy in Newburgh, NY. Building off of last year’s events, we hope you’ll join the virtual placemaking, design workshop with Yale Architects.
In adhering to social distancing protocols, we can still do this! This is how: First, familiarize yourself with the introduction to Reimagine Lake Street and Muchattoes Lake below and enjoy a virtual tour produced by Outdoor Promise. Then, review each of the three sites, their context, and choose which site you would like to reimagine!

Step 4: The Fun Part! Share your ideas.
Now comes the fun-fun part! To make this a design workshop, put your idea, whether grounded in reality or highly imaginative into a drawing or collage or some other visual product. Share what matters to you about this special place in Newburgh. Take a picture and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org by June 1st. Bonus if you provide an explanation!
When looking at the sites, consider these design prompts below. What design intervention would propose to make the selected site :
Depending on how many volunteers, a Yale Architect will be matched to you/your drawing. There will be the option to have a one-on-one call with that person to discuss the proposal.
All collected submissions will make a vibrant, multifaceted tapestry of ideas for Muchattoes Lake’s future that Yale Architects will respond to! We are excited to be working closely with Horizons on the Hudson and Newburgh Free Academy’s PTech program. An exhibition will be presented in Fall 2020 at the Newburgh Free Library.
