The situation on Fishkill Ave is (seemingly) unfortunate, but the timing may be good for some folks, at least. The 2nd floor of the BEAHIVE building recently became available, so we're considering ways to take it over and accommodate some of those being "displaced."
The floor includes 4 rooms totaling 1500 sq ft: kitchen, bathroom with shower, large back room with work sink to be divided into studios, middle room that would be a meeting room/dining room/lounge. (See…Continue

Dear BCN community,
May I ask what you think the city government should do that would lift our city to new levels? What goals should we aspire to reach? What is it that this city needs or wants or should do, more than anything else....from basic infrastructure like more parking spaces to ideals such as call-in or online polls on the bigger questions facing our city?
Thank you, Steve Gold
Some comments to the Poughkeepsie Journal article about the prospective renovation of Beacon Incline Railway. We propose an alternative possibility: Transforming the old rail-line in Beacon into a walking path akin to the one in New Paltz, Millerton, and other towns, rather than wasting resources on an unnecessary relic of an incline railway on Mt.

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…Continue

Mill Street Loft continues to climb in the rankings on the Pepsi Refresh Everything Project.
Cole Brothers (formerly Clyde-Beatty Cole) has a long history of abusing animals, even killing some. Angry wild animals (tigers and elephants) have escaped multiple times and injured and killed circus–goers.
After decades of warnings, in 2008, the USDA revoked Cole Bros. right to own animals under the Animal Welfare Act. They now lease animals from other small circuses, and the cycle of abuse and danger goes…Continue

It looks like Fishkill’s financial woes have pressured them to make some reckless ecological decisions about the Clove Creek and aquifer. The Highland Ridge Valley development, in its current plan, will add 210 mobile home units right on top of the aquifer. There is more land to add more as the…Continue
