Pete's Hot Dog Stand

293 South William St., Newburgh, NY - (845) 561-0211

There are a few tables inside and a couple of picnic tables in the parking lot.

Pete's makes a fine version of the traditional Texas weiner -- sauce, mustard, onions -- that is found throughout southeastern New York and along the Hudson River up to and (arguably) including Plattsburg.

Although its neighborhood is down at the heels, Pete's is just up the street from Newburgh's still-impressive Downing Park, co-designed by Frederick Law Olmstead and Calvert Vaux at the beginning of the 20th century. Vaux and Olmstead are best known for Manhattan's Central Park and Brooklyn's Prospect Park.
