Take some time and meander down along the route of the Croton Aqueduct. The whole path spans 26.2 miles, from Croton Gorge Park to Van Cortlandt Park, but even a short walk yields great views and even remnants of the old aqueduct system. Kacey says “I spend hours walking and looking at the scenery. It’s very peaceful and beautiful.”

This Peekskill treasure, originally built as a 1500 seat movie palace in 1930, has been bringing cultural and educational programming to the region since 1982. A year-round multidisciplinary center for the arts, Kasey loves it because it “has an art gallery on the second floor with wonderful exhibits. It’s definitely a hidden gem.”
