Plus, Peekskill offers restaurant, pub, arts and entertainment possibilities of urban life, making it an ideal place to live.

Peekskill is one of the most affordable places to work in Westchester.

Choices range from store-front commercial, to mixed use retail and manufacturing, to professional office space in modern office buildings.  Because of our range of affordable work options and one of the lowest city property tax rates in New York State, we’re a city you can grow your business in.

The train commute to the heart of NYC is under an hour.

So go ahead, grab a seat, drink your coffee, and read the paper or just watch the river roll by – it beats strap-hanging crunched together in a subway car like a can of sardines.

We live the great outdoors.

Amenities close by include Depew Park bordering downtown, Blue Mountain Reservation, Harriman State Park, Bear Mountain State Park, and Riverfront Green Park with access to the Hudson River. Downtown Peekskill is an ideal jumping-off point for all the fishing, hiking, and biking that the Hudson Valley has to offer.

Cultural diversity comes with a whole lot of side benefits.

Small restaurants can feed you with home-cooked meals that transport you to other countries or local grocery stores that carry everything from plantains and hot chili peppers to organic peanut butter.
