What’s Up Peekskill? The weather outside is frightful.


Hey P-Rockers, be safe tonight – crazy early winter weather: snow, rain, icy roads. It’s a little early in the season so even though you may be ready for it, others might not be! Be safe out there. And don’t worry, there’s a whiskey tasing at Dylan’s and a Chili Cook-off at the Elk’s Lodge this weekend to warm you up!

What’s Up Peekskill? Daylight Savings Ended and we voted

What’s Up Peekskill? A cold, silent, indifferent universe.


Saturday is Book Lover’s day — so maybe stop by and support your local library, where an art show titled “A Benign Indifference” about our cold, silent, indifferent universe is on display. Did you know that (Ben Franklin created the first lending library?) And check out this super-cool idea: Little Free Library. I don’t know about you, but I think knowledge rocks, otherwise how could we know our universe is cold, silent and indifferent? And libraries are full of knowledge. And Peekskill has a library, so… Peekskill Rocks!

🚴‍♂️ Critical Mass ✊

Someone just passed Peekskill Rocks a note about an event tomorrow night:

A group of bicyclists in Halloween costumes will be gathering by the riverfront this Friday night at 6:30PM. Word is they’ll be storming the streets of Peekskill ahead of the nor’easter as Peekskill joins the worldwide movement of Critical Mass.

For details on the event and to register, visit the website.
