Discover Peekskill

The City of Peekskill is a thriving, historic community located on the banks of the Hudson River.  Just under one hour north of New York City, Peekskill is culturally and economically vibrant, and it is blessed with abundant natural resources due to its location on the river and at the gateway to the Hudson Highlands.

Peekskill’s pedestrian-friendly downtown is buzzing with an array of dining and entertainment establishments.  Further, the City is home to a growing arts community.  With artist lofts, studios, galleries and museums, Peekskill has no shortage of arts activities.

Our waterfront, with over three miles of continuous parkland, is a regional destination with a variety of active and passive recreation, as well as breathtaking views of the Hudson River.

With more development projects, parks and events planned, Peekskill continues to show how a small city can be the ideal place to live, work and play.
