Beacon

neighborhood guide

Thanks to the 2003 opening of Dia Beacon, a world-renowned art museum located on the Hudson River, Dutchess County's Beacon has experienced a massive revival as a must-go day-trip for Manhattanites, as well as a sought-after home for savvy commuters and anyone ready to leave the city full time but unwilling to give up easy access to masterful artworks. With its charming Main Street district packed with restaurants and shops, and a riverfront park that hosts many events, you'd be hard-pressed to find another spot in New York that marries small-town beauty with high-end cred in a single destination.
