Peekskill, New York is located on a bay on the east side of the Hudson River. The population of the city was approximately 22,000 in the last census taken in 2000. The city has a total area of 5.5 square miles, and some beautiful scenic views of the Hudson along the western border. The city is 41 miles from Grand Central Station in New York City by Metro North, and is a short ride from the United States Military Academy at West Point where some exciting sporting events are played, including college football games between Army and Navy, for example.

Over the last several years, there has been a concerted effort to renovate many of the cultural highlights in Peekskill, including the magnificent Paramount Center For The Fine Arts, which was beautifully restored. Such musical illustrious acts as B.B King, Chuck Berry, Randy Newman, and comedians Lewis Black and Jackie Mason have performed at the Paramount in recent years. Across the street from the Paramount is the Peekskill Coffee House, where numerous delicious types of coffee, fountain drinks and pastries are offered while local musical acts aspiring to make it across the street to the Paramount showcase their talents.

At the western border of the City by the Peekskill train station is a beautiful public park on the Hudson River where numerous events are held during the summer months, highlighted by the annual fireworks display on Independence Day organized by the renowned Grucci Brothers.
