Located in the northwestern part of the county, the city of Peekskill overlooks the Hudson and is known for being an early American industrial center.

Over the years, Peekskill has grown to be a thriving artistic community, with notables like the Hudson Valley Center for Contemporary Art and the Paramount Center for the Arts, which offers live entertainment. Several venues in Peekskill provide space for local artists to perform, including the trendy Peekskill Coffee House and The BeanRunner Café—both of which host open mic nights throughout the year. Residents also enjoy the local Peekskill Brewery. And with the Hudson River so close by, there are many opportunities to enjoy the outdoors—including kayaking, and river cruise tours.
