Mid-Hudson - Peekskill

Mid-Hudson - Peekskill


Peekskill was selected as the winner of the $10 million Downtown Revitalization Initiative (DRI) award in the Mid-Hudson region.

The City of Peekskill in Westchester County invites people to “Take a Peek ...Discover Peekskill!” Its DRI target area includes the downtown and waterfront Transit-Oriented Development District which boasts cultural and educational institutions, an award-winning waterfront and parks system, and a core string of restaurants and boutique retailers. Niche markets in entertainment, fine and digital art, culture, craft food and beverages, sports and recreation, waterfront tourism, and personal services have emerged in recent years and serve as a solid foundation upon which to continue the community’s revitalization. The DRI award will enable Peekskill to build on these successes with strengthened pedestrian amenities that link existing community assets and increased offerings in tourism, the arts, media, and light manufacturing that create employment and training opportunities for a range of skill and wage levels.
