The City is on us

Our logo

We’re in Peekskill, New York just 41 walking miles north of Central Park in mid-town Manhattan. And we feel it. So many cars on the road. Commuter trains passing us every hour. Shipping traffic on the Hudson. And the people have a different air, the air of the city is on us. It won’t be long now.
 
Last night in Beacon we were the guests of Ed Benevente, a local artist transplanted from LA. Thanks, Ed, for a lot of good conversation and the place to sleep in a town without motels.
 
It feels strange to be in the immediate suburbs of a huge city and to also be in the mountains and along this huge river, the Hudson. It is good to walk and see that.
