Profile Information

How long have you lived in Beacon?
5 years
More about me:
Grew up in Fishkill, Educated in Rhode Island, Worked in Manhattan for 8 years and now back in the Hudson Valley. I love the Valley and hope to see Beacon as the first Green city in America. There is a great deal of activity here in Beacon and times are tough for many. We need to stick together, help one another and better organize. Stay local, shop local and be active. Many people can share their opinions, but more need to step up and make things happen. Beauty be to Beacon.
What's your favorite thing about Beacon?
There are so many things to choose from, but I would have to say the diversity and how the community has come together to help each other out.

We have an exciting opportunity to once again have a much needed recreation resource available to the residents of Southern Dutchess and Putnam Counties.

With the support of community residents, we… Continue

Enjoy our local Atrium: THE DIA

 

 

My girlfriend and I have been going bonkers with cabin fever this winter.  We were wondering what to do one weekend and really wished that there was an atrium like the many in the city.  Then it occurred to me: thanks to the Fishbacks, residents of Beacon have free access to the DIA on weekends.  So we have been taking advantage of that great benefit.  We sit in the Wharhol exhibit and read…
