Welcome Artists, Athletes, and Everyone
Peekskill, New York is a medium sized city with around 24,000 residents. The city is only about an hour away from New York City (by car that is; if you're floating down the Hudson in a canoe it'll take you considerably longer). In the 1990s as the population was in decline, the city reached out to artists from NYC and convinced many to move upriver. As a result, the area became a haven for artists and dozens of artist's studios now line the streets downtown. You will be able to decorate your new apartment with all kinds of locally made art when you make move. The problem will be limiting your art budget so that you have enough money left over for food, and enough space left over on the walls to know what color the paint in your apartment is. Peekskill is also surrounded by beautiful city and state parks so you can take full advantage of every beautiful day that comes your way.
Living in an Artist's Paradise
For over twenty years now, Peekskill has been a haven for artists. When the city noticed a decline in activity in its once busy downtown area, it decided that the best way to attract more action was to fill the retail spaces with people who both lived and worked downtown. Who better to live in their workspaces than artists displaced from the skyrocketing prices in New York City's SoHo district? The city offered special interest rates for artists who bought studio space in town and thus created one of the nation's most artist-friendly downtown areas. If you are an artist yourself, you'll fit right in in downtown. If you're not an artist, you can enjoy browsing through the local artwork at the various galleries downtown. The Peekskill Coffee House also provides local artists (and art or coffee connoisseurs) with a place to gather and to hang (and hopefully sell) some of their pieces. You'll want to pop into the shop as often as you can since the art is rotated frequently.
If the performing arts are more your scene, the Paramount Center for the Arts has been entertaining audiences since the 1930s. Once exclusively a movie theater, the center has been restored and is now used to screen films (of the blockbuster and art house varieties), and has a stage for theatrical, musical and comedy performances. Many big-name acts come into town from New York or as a part of a national tour, so you don't have to drive into the big city to enjoy a night out at the theater. For those that want to though, Broadway is just over an hour away. It’s close enough to make for a great night out but not so far away that you can’t retreat back to your new apartment for a decent night’s sleep.
A Sporting Chance
For those entrenched in the art scene, making new friends is a snap, but what about renters who prefer the thrill of a sports game to a quiet day of painting? Is there a place for them in Peekskill? As a matter of fact, there is. The locals are a well-rounded bunch and many of them, even the artistic types, enjoy watching a game of baseball or football. New York City is home to at least one team from every major sport and quite a few teams representing more obscure sports (at least in America) including rugby, cricket, arm wrestling and gaelic games. In town, renters can watch the games from one of the local sports bars or on a neighbor's big screen TV. In order to watch the games live, you’ll need to make the drive into the city for the day. Of course, you can always just relax and settle into your new apartment and watch it there as well.
It's Wild Outside
Though it's only a little more than an hour away from one of the largest cities in the world, Peekskill is almost entirely surrounded by nature. This city is bordered by the Hudson River on the west (which allowed early settlers to receive supplies), the Blue Mountain Reserve to the south, and Hudson-Highland Gateway Park to the north. Across the river, Bear Mountain State Park is a great place to camp, fish, hike, and enjoy a taste of the beauty of New York as it once was. If you're thinking about becoming an artist (and who doesn't, from time to time?) the scenery in the park might just inspire you to break out that case of emergency watercolors.
