Hudson Valley Professional Photographers spent the afternoon taking studio portraits at the Ritz Theatre in Newburgh on December 11, 2012. Sandy O’Shea and Tom Duggan owners of Wings of Love Photography, Mark Greenstone owner of Magestic Studios, Peter Salo owner of Peter Salo Photography and Klaus Kretschmer all donated their considerable talents and time photographing residents of the Cornerstone. Each resident was presented with a gift of two 8X10 copies, one to keep and one to give, of their favorite photograph. More than 100 Cornerstone residents and Newburgh residents participated in the event.
The Cornerstone Residence includes 128 apartments, including 116 supportive housing units and 12 artist lofts and houses a mixed tenancy of adults including the formerly homeless, those living with a mental health diagnosis, veterans, artists, low-income working adults, and other adults who need affordable housing.
