What’s Up Peekskill? It’s Springtime. No, really.

Well it really is spring. March came in like a lion. Spring… not so much. But that’s no reason not to rock it. Get off your duff and just do it. Come downtown, ’cause springfever is in the air in Peekskill this weekend. C’mon and rock.

What’s Up Peekskill? It’s February, and winter is both longer and shorter

It’s a battle of the ground hogs! Punxsutawney Phil says more winter. He’s usually about 30% right. Staten Island Chuck says spring is in the air. She’s about 80% right. Time will tell. In the meantime, Peekskill has some rockin’ to do.
