Why Newburgh?

Umbra is also in the city of Newburgh, NY, which boasts the east end historic district, the second largest historic district outside of New York City.

What people say:

Umbra has been home to several films and television series since its 2012 launch and has received rave reviews!

“Great Sound Stage with amazing space ! Access to bathrooms, parking, full kitchen , and production offices. I was very impressed by their security staff and the amount of space you are provided. The price is much lower than other competitors in the area and is only an hour and 15 minutes from Manhattan. HUGE cyc-wall too !”

Newburgh arts and culture scene

The arts are enjoying a healthy renaissance in Newburgh as artists, makers, set designers, foodies and musicians escape Brooklyn for cheap commercial real estate and cheap residential real estate, as well as a lively arts scene.

Plus, the beauty of the Hudson Valley and the Hudson River coupled with Newburgh’s renowned architecture continues to attract creatives, as has been the case for centuries.
