Peekskill in the News

Lately some  well respected newspapers have taken notice of our town.

A few weeks ago, March 6, the Wall Street Journal noted our “increasingly vibrant downtown,” and that we’ve “experienced a resurgence in recent years.”

The following weekend saw a surge in business.

Today, April 1, The New York Times has jumped on our bandwagon with a Donnie and Marie reference in the headline, “a Little Country, a Little Urban.” (not sure what that will get us…)

Let’s see what happens this coming weekend!

And remember, Peekskill Rocks!

Follow the Yellow Brick Road…

… to see the wonderful Wizard of Oz at Peekskill’s Paramount Theatre.

Starts tonight, January 16 and runs through Sunday. Two shows on Saturday. Click here to buy tickets, and get more info.

And for those of you who don’t know, Peekskill does, in fact, have a yellow brick road! For realz!  Controversy surrounds whether it had anything to do with the Wizard of Oz, but the author, Frank Baum, did attend Peekskill Military Academy before writing the Oz stories.
