The first Peekskill concert was at Lakeland Acres Picnic Area directly across from Hillside and Assumption Cemeteries.

The second Peekskill concert was held at the Hollow Brook country club.

I did a lot of playing and exploring in that brook next to the drive-in. Also enjoyed a few trout.

I lived on old Oregon Rd Walking distance to the drive-in. We didn’t go to Peekskill city schools.

I think we hung some Tories during the revolutionary war also. Who knows what we did to the Indians but I don’t believe the Drive-in was involved.

Peekskill was part of our mailing address, the closest city. I don’t ever remember seeing Peekskill police. But Peekskill had a quaint style indoor theater with a balcony if I remember correctly. And also it’s the birth place of Mel Gibson and maybe that’s where he saw his first movie.

Well it was a nice area to live, I Liked going the drive-in and carvel when in season.

I got a kick watching “No Direction Home” that the totally open Pete Seeger was so outraged over the electric Bob Dylan he wanted to get a axe and kill the power. bvg
