Support The Peekskill Post

Our operation is a small one, with Bryan Fumagalli and Christina Scotti running the site while raising our beautiful daughter, Reagan. We aim to expand and improve the scope of our coverage through the use of freelance reporters and photographers, as well as to reach out to residents to help us with our Events Calendar, Business Guide, all-new Classifieds section and possible podcast. This is all in an effort to reach our ultimate goal of bringing a print newspaper back to Peekskill, and in order for that to happen the success of peekskillpost.net is vital.
