The Green Room
Once upon a time, it used to be the place to have an event. In its heyday, the Green Room was the scene of many wedding receptions, bar mitzvahs, award dinners and birthday parties. It is rumored that Frank Sinatra once spent time here with his cronies.
Part of the historic Hotel Newburgh, now newly renovated and renamed The Cornerstone Residence, the Green Room’s green terrazzo floor was restored by Safe Harbors of the Hudson. The Nemethy Mural, painted for the room by Albert Nemethy in 1950, is owned by the Historical Society of Newburgh and is now back home where it belongs in the Green Room.
Now, once again, the Green Room is the scene of many celebrations including weddings, baptisms, sweet sixteens, quinceaneras, movie screenings, and comedy shows. It can also be utilized for meetings, seminars, and networking or fundraising events.
The Green Room is adjacent to beautifully re-designed, clean rest rooms. It has a large, brightly lit fully equipped kitchen and 4200 square feet of useable space that is tastefully decorated. Maximum capacity for this room is 250 people. Brighten the lights for a meeting or lower them for a wedding. Almost anything goes!
Past and present hosts of events in the Green Room include the Greater Newburgh YMCA, Habitat for Humanity of Greater Newburgh, the City of Newburgh, Orange County Chamber of Commerce, Independent Living, state and local government agencies, Washington’s Headquarters as well as numerous private individuals and organizations.
If using tables and chairs for sit-down events, maximum occupancy may vary depending on what kind of an event is being held in this space.
The entire staff was very helpful in assisting our organization from start to finish, ensuring our success. Guests, who were long-time residents, were thrilled to experience the Green Room’s revitalization and being there brought back great memories for them. Newcomers were in awe of its history and value to our community. This is a safe, fabulous venue for events and a testament to the hard work of all involved.” —Marlene S., Greater Newburgh YMCA
