Beacon is still nice, and just one town away from us.

Dutchess county has been "discovered" just as Putnam and Orange were. So goes the march of time. Fishkill and Beacon have retained their charms.

Ulster is changing, too.

Even the capital region is seeing a spike in gun crime. Everything changes.

Beacon is a great place to live. Not just Beacon, but the sorounding areas. Of course time marches on and development and change must come and must be accepted and adjusted to. What with all the new art galeries and museums. Tie that in with all the lovely parks, riverfront, nice restaurants and things to do; easy access to New York City,and you have a really great place to live and raise a family.

Yeah, Dia certainly brought a need breed of visitors. One clown with Connecticut plates flipped me the bird at the Beacon Metro North station. And he was elderly!

The chattering classes come up and visit, but they go home after taking in the exhibits. I was there on opening day, and I noticed that not a single Afro-American artist had any work on display there. There's Andy Warhol, German artists, Ellsworth Kelly and Louise Bourgeois, more German artists, plenty of European stuff, but not a full spectrum of American artists. Just like Manhattan. It's all about establishment artists and money makers.

Thankfully, Beacon has retained its charms. I'm from the Bronx originally, and nothing I've seen here or in Newburgh comes close to the urban decay I've seen ther.

We're raising a family in Fishkill, and I highly recommend this area.
