High Street 1930's, photo provided by Historical Society of Newburgh Bay and the HighlandsFilmmaker/photographer and member of the Historical Society of Newburgh Bay and the Highlands (HSNBH), Joe Santacroce, who has created several videos about various topics on Newburgh’s rich history, is responsible for organizing the Newburgh Now and Then exhibit. This extensive show has been on exhibit at the Heritage Center which is also the office and space of the City Historian of Newburgh, Mary McTamaney.  It is a comparative exhibit of historic and present day photographs, and “exemplifies both the status and growth of the city today and the beauty of yesteryear,” states McTamaney. The historic photos have been provided by the historical society and the photos of today were taken by Joe Santacroce.

High Street Site 2015, photo by Joe SantacroceSelected from this large exhibit of paired photographs, those on view in the tall glass vitrine cases on the first floor of Kaplan Hall, SUNY Orange, were chosen because of their close proximity to the SUNY Orange campus.

Citizenship Class 1924, photo provided by Historical Society of Newburgh Bay and the HighlandsIn addition, in the horizontal glass vitrine cases on the first floor of Kaplan Hall, is Growing Up in Newburgh, an exhibit of photographs taken from family albums. "The concept is to convey the ephemeral and transient nature of memories such as this and simulate a walk through individual memories of a community," explains Russell Lange, member of the HSNBH who curated the show in its original form at the historical society.

The timeframe of the shows, which are free and open to the public, is June 21 through August 4, 2016 from 8am to 5pm Monday through Thursday, and additionally, Saturdays, June 25, 4-7 and July 30, 5-7.
