Party like it’s 1999- or something like that

Check out this recent post on Patch, claiming that a Sunrise Drive parent allegedly admitted to running a beer pong party for minors at her home. (See link below)  According to the article, the woman “admitted” that she had knowingly served alcohol to minors and was busted by the Sheriff presumably after neighbors called the cops to complain about all the noise.  Have to admit, I just don’t get it.

Brick & mortar in a cyber world

Shops like mine are growing scarcer each day as real world rents compete with cyberworld advantages.  I am counting on the fact that people just love to shop.  For many of us, myself included,  it’s really a form of therapy.  Despite all the images you will see online, there’s nothing like coming into a real world store with nice music in the background, the smell of incense wafting through, a la the East Village circa 1968.  That is the feeling I’ve tried to create here in Downtown Peekskill which reminds me very much of the old East Village in so many ways.  Stop by to see for yourself.
