Landmark Hudson Valley Eatery Appears To Close, Listed For Sale
Many Hudson Valley residents are disappointed a longtime eatery is closed.
Last year, Hudson Valley Post reported Dairy Island on South Robinson Avenue in Newburgh was for sale. The longtime business is still listed for sale for the same price of $700,000, according to a listing from LoopNet. The listing price is said to include the real estate, business, equipment and months of inventory.
Last summer Dairy Island remained home while the business was for sale. In 2021, despite other ice cream shop's in the region opening Dairy Island remains closed.
The iconic Newburgh ice cream shop was built in 1957, according to its listing. It's known for its ice cream, burgers and hot dogs.
