Small town and small city, just 40 miles from NYC with nearly 6 square miles of cultural events, restaurants, a growing population of hipsters, and a healthy housing supply of colonials and Victorians. Once a manufacturing hub, Crayola was initially the Binney and Smith Company out of Annsville; Peekskill’s industrial past slowly dwindled and it struggled to find its footing. In the 1990s the Common Council decided to market its unused downtown spaces as live/work artist studios and actively targeted artists fleeing New York’s ever-rising real estate market. It has been a slow burn, but fast forward to now. The waterfront art is super cool, and while there, make a pit stop at The Central, a former train station operating from morning to night and serving incredible food, coffees, and cocktails depending on the hour. Take in the spectacular sunset, Peekskill is known for them, and you may have to pinch yourself. Have dinner at Taco Dive Bar and be sure to stop in at Dylan’s Wine Cellar before you head home. The Factoria complex at Charles Point, home to laser tag, an arcade, an events space, Spins, Fin & Brew and River Outpost Brewing Co. are not to be missed. The downtown district has seen its own revitalization with the Paramount Theater, Peekskill Coffee House, Gleason’s, The Birdsall House and Iron Vine Tapas Bar to name just a few of the many must-visits. Peekskill just keeps getting more interesting. Art Industry Media (AIM), an initiative led by the Hudson Valley Gateway Chamber of Commerce, plans to make Peekskill the epicenter of the multimedia industry in the Hudson Valley. So, stay tuned…
