Beacon Citizen Network (BCN): a place for neighbors to get the word out, be heard and stay informed in all matters concerning Beacon, NY.



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 pre-renovation pics below.)

Contact Scott Tillitt ASAP if interested: / 917-449-6356. We need to know there's enough interest and what the needs are.

If you're not familiar with all that BEAHIVE is about, know that it is much more than a physical space. Community, which formed in an organic, fundamental way at Beacon Studios, is a big part of that.

Below is a taste of what else. Check the website for more:


• creative capital of multidisciplinary people working together to benefit the community
• collaboration on community-based projects
• warm, relaxed, welcoming vibe
• exposure to professional opportunities/new business
• access to other talented folks to help on projects or just bounce off ideas
• workshops & professional events
• social events


• physical place to work with shared resources
• broadband internet/wifi
• laser printers: color and multifunction (scanner/copier/fax)
• kitchenette with full fridge, microwave, coffee/tea (possible full kitchen on 2nd floor)
• sofas and armchairs and the like
• conference room
• books & magazine/newspaper subscriptions
• VOIP phone
• online community
• interns available to help with member projects (occasional)
• membership directory (coming soon)
• lockers (coming soon)
