We’re a group of friends and neighbors who think it’s important to make Peekskill more pedestrian friendly. Cities with high Walk Scores are stronger economically, have healthier residents, and are conscious of climate change — and they’re just plain more pleasant to walk around. We think Peekskill is awesome now, and we’re passionate about working to make it even better.

Greg also proposed walkability at the Community Congress. He, Margaret, and Conor are the original three founding members.

Fred runs the popular Peekskill Exurbanist (@peekskill_exurbanist) Instagram account. He was drawn to Peekskill for its compact, walkable urban fabric just an hour train ride from NYC.

Liz also moved here from Brooklyn. She got a gut feeling after five minutes walking around Peekskill during a day trip, and hasn’t looked back since.
