Peekskill, New York is a village in Westchester County and is located just 50 miles from the hub of New York City. It offers diverse modes of living for those who enjoy bucolic landscapes and also for those who wish to be nearer to shopping and recreation.

Its east side is demarcated by the beautiful Hudson River with its stunning views and rolling currents. Residents can enjoy boating as well as the nearby community filled with art, good food, and numerous cultural attractions. The Peekskill train station is about an hour away from Grand Central Station and the plethora of jobs and entertainment available.

Peekskill has a thriving urban area that is home to a variety of artists whose work can be purchased, and the area boasts galleries and exhibitions for the visual artists. In addition, the Lincoln Depot Museum and Hudson Valley Museum of Contemporary Art are popular stops for locals and tourists alike. For those who enjoy nature, the Blue Mountain Reservation offers hiking and panoramic vistas of the Manhattan skyline and even as far as Albany.
