kathleens tea roon, The quiet man, Division St, grill, Zephs, gleasons, Peekskill coffee house, Weeks,all good restaurants and businesses to name a few. I would not call Peekskill "Bar" town. It's far from perfect but no reason to make it out far worse than it really is.

Paddington Bear was from Darkest Peru. I don't think he frequented beauty parlors, though. Maybe he got a haircut once in a while but that's it. When he moved to England, he became a mod, like Sting. Maybe he greased his hair with that marmalade he liked. I don't know. I haven't seen him in Peekskill though.

Peekskill has come a criminal enterprise How else can the great Paramount heist be explained? Not one patron has been reimbursed for all the show tickets sold prior to closing and no one has been arrested. Considering the city owns the Paramount I suggest Mayor Foster's head.

I was in Beacon last week..now there is where a real re-vitalization has happened.. what a pleasure.. lots of interesting stores and restaurants.. Peekskill take notice they are light years ahead of you as far as attracting visitors and shoppers .. I live in Peekskill, have for almost 10 years.. maybe time to get out.. the warning signs are all around
