One poem will be posted on Fridays at www.emekproject.org, and hopefully the poems will add a little beauty to your Shabbat, however you celebrate it. We can all use a…Continue

Frequent issues involving Beacon's growth center on transportation. And we have a relic of Beacon's industrial past, the Beacon Line, running right through our city. Even more amazing (considering it is not currently used) is that the line is owned and maintained by the M.T.A.
The Beacon Line Project is a long term advocacy group centered on finding ways to use this line. Whether light rail, scenic walking, biking, alone or in combination, the Beacon Line Project aims to draw…Continue

The Denning’s Point trails are closed for the winter to protect the American Bald Eagle foraging, perching and roosting habitat. This winter-time closing is essential if we’re to be environmentally-conscious stewards and coincidentally provides some delightful “down time” for me as a Point tour leader and author-lecturer. In the spirit of whimsy I returned to my original research notes just for the fun of reviewing what I call my “blue pencil notes.”
I don't know if he's part of the urban legend landscape of Beacon, but I was born in Danbury, grew up in Newtown (exit 11 on i84, strangely enough), and we would hear embellished stories about this guy:
