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!

What’s up, Peekskill? Lots, as usual!
