Please vote for A Little Beacon Blog for "Best Of" in Hudson Valley Magazine!

Hey!

Some of you know A Little Beacon Blog from its early days of the "Where Is This?" contest - which is coming back btw!! Just had to have two kids first and then get back on the saddle.

Start-up New York

You've probably seen the TV ads for "Start-up NY", the state program that offers tax-free (or maybe just tax-reduced?) status to businesses opening or re-locating to NY.  I checked the website, and it appears the program is geared toward very large businesses/manufacturers.  That may be a great program for the large businesses, but I think a program for small businesses could benefit towns such as Beacon.  What's to prevent Beacon from starting its own, small-scale version of this program,…

AirBnB in Beacon

I've been hearing about the airbnb phenomena; where homeowners (and often problematical when renters try it on the places they rent) rent out all or part of their place to people for short periods of time, like regular B&Bs, but w/o the breakfast.  A quick view of the airbnb.com website shows that at least 9 are listed in the city limits of Beacon, but what is really amazing, is there are at least 7 in a small cluster in Glenham, all within a few houses of each other (perhaps one owner…

Rehearsal Space for music lessons

Hello,

Does anyone know of a rehearsal space available in/near Beacon that I can give music lessons in?  I'm a music teacher and usually give them in my home but can't be there now due to mold.  Looking for this Monday, 3-6 pm.  Or, perhaps a church that rents space?

Thanks,

Michele Scher

Found Dog

There is a dog wandering Cliff Street. Collar, no tag.

Is she (he?) yours?

I don't speak Dog, so I have no idea how or why she got so cold, scared, and lonely.
