This Saturday is Peekskill Herald Day at the Central

Join us from 12 – 4 pm on 5/7 to meet the writers and help support local journalism


Each week readers see interesting, engaging stories on these pages with bylines –  the names of reporters and writers. That’s one of the benefits of journalism in a community where the people who write the stories are accountable to the public for what’s published. The reporters and writers are known because they live here and have connections in the community. 

Since the Peekskill Herald started posting during the pandemic years, we’ve been unable to meet many of our readers in person. What better way  to spend a spring Saturday afternoon than meeting and greeting people in the community? That’s the reason behind Peekskill Herald Day this Saturday, May 7 from 12 to 4 p.m. at The Central, the new restaurant at the Peekskill train station on Railroad Avenue. 

The Central recently opened the bistro part of their building for lunch and dinner, and offered to host Peekskill Herald Day. We’ll be set up outside on their patio and if it’s raining, we’ll be inside by the bar. Stop by and meet the people behind the bylines and become a member of this nonprofit organization that serves the community with stories about the people and happenings in Peekskill. 

As a nonprofit community newspaper, we are financially sustained by the membership of people we serve. We’ll be giving away specially-designed Peekskill Herald T-shirts with membership at certain levels. Peekskill’s own streetwear company, Whadafunk, produced our shirt and will be on hand, showing off their creative line of clothing. 

We’ll also have a limited edition print of Peekskill by local artist Bob Barthelmes, last-minute Mother’s Day gift memberships, and more! Stop by and meet the people behind the bylines, tell us what you love about the Herald and what you’d like to see more of, and support the cause of truly local Peekskill journalism.
