This Week on Upstater: Let's Go to Beacon and Peekskill

  |  December 12, 2016

45 Teller Avenue, Beacon: $389,900

This week we’re headed east of the Hudson River, starting in the southern Dutchess County city of Beacon and heading south toward Peekskill in northern Westchester County. Why? Because both of little riverfront communities are happening right now. Good food, an art scene (Beacon is known for its art lofts), access to public transportation, all the good stuff. The WSJ called Peekskill’s blossoming “a comeback” and referred to it as “the best kept secret in Westchestesr,” but for those of us who live up here and pay attention to such things, it’s been blossoming for a while, slowly but surely, and we can’t help but appreciate Beacon’s and Peekskill’s feisty gumption.
