2009: The 300th Anniversary of Newburgh!

In 2009, New York State celebrated the 400th anniversary of Henrik Hudson's sail up the Hudson River in 1709- the first European expedition to do so- and Samuel de Champlain's expedition that took him to first gaze upon the lake that bears his name in the same year. It was also the 200th anniversary of Robert Fulton's first steamboat trip up the Hudson River.

Newburgh is simultaneously celebrated its 300th anniversary. The Palatines arrived from the Palatinate along the Rhine River in Germany in the Spring of 1709 as its first European settlers having been issued a patent by the Queen of England.

As THE source for Newburgh memorabilia, we introduced new souvenirs to commemorate and celebrate Newburgh's history past and present in this banner year. As our first offering we published a limited edition postcard every week in 2009.

December 6, 2008 Grand Opening Press Release

Newburgh, NY, November 28, 2008. The Palatine Shop is holding its Grand Opening on Saturday, December 6 from 2 – 6 pm at 87 Liberty Street, in the heart of Newburgh’s Heritage Corridor. At the same location in July, co-owners Michael Gabor and Gerardo Castro opened Newburgh Art Supply, which has been successful and occupying most of their attention.

The Palatine Shop, featuring Newburgh memorabilia and souvenirs, has been developing since July and is now ready to be officially introduced. The shop is perfectly located, right across the street from Washington’s Headquarters, Newburgh’s best known and most popular tourist attraction. In addition to a large selection of plates with images of Washington’s Headquarters and other historic sites, you can find reproduction postcards and books of Newburgh’s history, Mary Evelyn Whitehill’s greeting cards, and antique souvenirs. Building on their existing inventory, new items include Newburgh-themed T-shirts and paperweights.

The Palatine Shop will serve light refreshments at its Grand Opening, including baked goods from Heart’s Delight Bakery, soon to open next door. Until they physically open, you can order their renowned cheesecakes and other goodies online at, or you can call 845-561-2205.

The Palatine Shop is proud to be part of Newburgh’s renaissance on historic Liberty Street, along with other businesses that have opened in the past few years, and more slated to open in the coming months. While at the grand opening on December 6, you can also celebrate the 6th Anniversary of Newburgh Artisans, or check out the 1st Annual Bells on Broadway Arts & Crafts Show at the Ritz Theatre, both just around the corner. Right in the neighborhood, shop for your organic groceries at the Moo & Oink Gourmet Market, have a light meal or coffee at Caffe Macchiato, or furnish your home with recycled and gently used items at Habitat for Humanity’s Restore.

The Palatine Shop grows out of Gabor’s passion for collecting Newburgh souvenirs. He recognizes how they convey a “pride of place” and regularly hears from people searching for mementos. The shop’s name pays homage to the posh Grand Street hotel that was razed during "Urban Renewal”, so it is fitting that The Palatine Shop contribute to Newburgh’s current resurgence. A synergy is created with Newburgh Art Supply, Eric Jarmann Custom Framing, and The Palatine Shop located in the same space, along with the many shops nearby. Each fills a niche by itself. Together, the shops and attractions combine to create an appealing and vibrant destination. For more information, contact The Palatine Shop at 845-561-5552 or

GRAND OPENING!! Saturday, December 6, 2008: 2pm-6pm

The renovated store with its gleaming tin ceiling, schoolhouse light fixtures and ceiling fans, creates the feeling of an old-time shop found in the Newburgh of yesteryear. So it is fitting that The Palatine Shop, which grows out of Gabor's passion for collecting Newburgh souvenirs, is located within the Newburgh Art Supply space. Whether a native or a transplant, Gabor describes how Newburgh "becomes a part of you" after spending time here. He recognizes how souvenirs convey a "pride of place" and regularly hears from people searching for mementos, even those who have left many years ago. The Palatine Shop, whose name pays homage to the posh Grand Street hotel that was razed during Urban Renewal, will offer a selection of antique souvenirs along with new ones -- such as postcards and greeting cards by local artists. Among the antique souvenirs is a broad collection of plates with images of Washington's Headquarters, one of Newburgh's most visited attractions. How serendipitous that the shop's door aligns precisely with the Headquarters gate across the street!
