What’s Up Peekskill? Autumn begins.


Looks like it’ll clear up and be a nice early autumn weekend. Just in time, too, as Trinity Cruises (see link at bottom) is now offering Fall Foliage cruises. There’s Lego building at the Library and lots of live music. So get c’mon down and, as Confusius says (probably) – Peekskill Rocks.
