I found a Jewish cemetery in Newburgh (Orange County)...approximate coordinates are 41.494895 Latitude and -74.040228 Longitude. It's off of Temple Avenue and Ellis Avenue and near Crystal Lake. It is very far off the road and is surrounded by a fence that looks like it was put up in recent years. The fence is broken and there are beer bottles and garbage strewn all over. Some of the stones are knocked over and very weather worn and everything is overgrown. From what my sister tells me, it was a hangout for teenagers in the 80s, and it looks like it still is today. It's such a shame. Some graves are from the 1800s while others are from within the last 20 or 30 years. I wish I knew who it belonged to and why they aren't taking care of it!
