I found it strange to be at an Italian Feast & not be able to find a stand with sausage & peppers! What's that about?

I had the pleasure of walking around Downtown Peekskill after visiting the Italian Fiesta. I was quite impressed with the positive changes that have taken place. There seem to be a nice variety of shops & dining choices & the riverfront has been transformed from what I remember when I lived in that area. I also noticed the level of care given to the landscape & in particular the planters that are placed throughout the City. Well done!
