Nobody divides the valley by rivers, mountains, roads or bridges. Dotted lines on a map mean nothing.
An influx of home grown locals returning to the nest after time spent away.
A steady stream of artists, writers, actors and musicians setting down bags and putting down roots.
Interests and perspectives of all shapes and sizes expanding to new worlds in the light of a broadband connection… this is the valley today.

Beacon cool is a pin on this map, a center point for discovering all things weird and wholly in the valley. An editorial site that combines art, culture, Outdoor activities, interesting people, style and substance.

Dutchess, Orange, Putnam or Ulster… there are all kinds of things happening, some of them are so cool, they’re BeaconCool…
