Tales of Two Cities

Tales of Two Cities: The Newburgh Beacon Cell Phone Tour was developed as a cultural tourism project, funded by the New York Council for the Humanities, to encourage people visiting the Hudson River waterfront to venture into the heart of these two cities. Fifteen signs take visitors through an entertaining look at the cities’ lesser known historic sites, as told by the voices of the people who live there. A sign in a city park asks “What could you have seen from this very spot in 1970?” By calling the number on the sign, the listener hears a story told by a resident of the lost neighborhood whose home was demolished during urban renewal.
