Field Trip: The Boutique Bringing Indie Brands to Newburgh, NY

Field Trip on 113 Liberty Street in Newburgh NY

In the last ten years we’ve seen many Hudson Valley areas (Kingston, Beacon, Poughkeepsie) find new life as more  entrepreneurs begin opening eateries and stores. Newburgh is no exception. In the last few years we’ve seen some amazing small businesses emerge, such as 2 Alices Coffee Lounge, Newburgh Mercantile, and Ms. Fairfax. Now Field Trip joins the ranks as the premiere spot to find artisanally crafted items by independent American designers.

Located on 113 Liberty Street, Field Trip is in the heart of one of the more exciting and foot trafficked areas of the city. On the same block you’ll find Cream Boutique, vintage bicycle museum Velocipede, and the newly opened bakery The Flour Shop.  With her partner Mike, long time HV resident and owner, Christina Silvestris, has created an ultra chill shop with a vintage meets rustic ascetic that is fully stocked with home accessories, jewelry, paper goods and other #treatyourself worthy items in 23 days!

If you recognize Christina’s name, it’s because I’ve mentioned her before. As the creator behind apothecary-based Hudson Naturals, she’s been looking to open a storefront for more than a year. Instead of making a showroom solely for her own line, she wanted to highlight other indie brands creating cool and functional products. You’ll find market totes from Maika, an eco-concious Cali based brand on the shelves, along with cocktail shakers by VISKI, and even books like Wicked Plants.

On Saturday the shop hosted its grand opening, complete with an evening soiree later in the afternoon. Visitors shopped, enjoyed cupcakes and drinks while mingling with other patrons. Some spent a shameful amount of time taking selfies, but they will remain nameless.

If you’ve never considered going to store openings or small local events, rethink this move. It’s a great way to connect with people in the area. One of the things I love about Newburgh is its inclusive community. Much of the area’s resurgence comes from locals invested in seeing the city thrive once more. As someone who spent a chunk of her twenties enjoying Front Street (do you guys remember Front Street?!), it’s exciting to see the transformation and know that Field Trip is part of it.

  1. Well, that is a wonderful array of goods, and great to have new energy coming back to Newburgh…but how about a follow up article on all the other wonderful places in Newburgh? The history of this town is a textbook on the devastation wrought by 20th Century disregard, abuse, and neglect, and making a business out of poverty. If this tcity is to come into it’s own in this new century, we have be holistic, inclusive and bring EVERYONE along on the trip. How about the numerous Peruvian and Mexican restaurants that have been a mainstay when the hoi polloi wouldn’t come here? how the Soul Food Spot? some of the Italian places that are still around? Or, now, The Shelter House Cafe in Downing Park? Or go into the hip hop store on Liberty Street where you can get a sweet ‘Newburgh is Everybody’ t shirt? What I’m saying is yeah, come for the artisanal well-curated boutique designer goods and stay to celebrate the diversity of the the local culture. Newburgh is not just a small collection of stores around Liberty and Ann Streets. Just Sayin’. Thanks!

    • Hey Sean! Thanks for commenting and the ideas. I am working on other spots to share in the city. Newburgh has been one of my favorite places since the early ’00s. I usually update my instagram (@theupstateedit) when I have a new story up about a local restaurant, shop or activity. As you touched on, Newburgh has a very long history, one that includes an urban renewal in the 60s which was (in my opinion) devastating to the area. Perhaps I should do a piece about Newburgh and other places in the area that have a similar past?
