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


In case you’re wondering why you’ve been late for work all week, Daylight Savings ended last Sunday. We fell back to good old regular Eastern Standard Time. So wake up, go downtown and P-Rock it out. After you rake some leaves, of course … Hello, autumn!

What’s Up Peekskill? Hurricane Humidity


There’s a woodworking event down at Dain’s Lumber all weekend, Jefferson Starship at the Paramount, mad science at the library, the other usual Peekskill shenanigans, and a Hurricane named after my grand mother pushing more of that dreaded humidity up here (yuk!). So get downtown and P-Rock your humidity away, but let’s give a P-Rockin’ stay-safe shout out to those in the Florence’s path.

What’s Up Peekskill? Summer Humidity


Well it’s summer. Humidity is the rule, not the exception. So ignore it best you can and get downtown and rock out. If you’re gonna sweat, might as well do something to make it happen. No point in sweating for no good reason. That’s how you P-Rock. If you got it, shake it!
