Newburgh: The Heart of the City focuses on one of the widest thoroughfares in the Northeast, Broadway, the main street in Newburgh, measuring one hundred thirty-two feet across. Known as "the heart of the city," Broadway was the activity center in the twentieth century. It was lined with government offices, commercial and business enterprises, schools, churches, restaurants, firehouses, farms, fortune-tellers, and entertainment and recreational establishments. Broadway was not only the street of everyman but also the street of presidents, playing host to both Franklin D. Roosevelt and John F. Kennedy.
