Jason and I took a day trip to Beacon, NY - population 14,389 (US Census 2013).
The quaint little town is 1.5 hours by train from NYC. It is known for Dia:Beacon - a massive museum of
contemporary art housed in a former Nabisco warehouse. Regrettably, the museum was closed.
So we walked around town.
It is a town open Friday to Monday (not Monday to Friday). The majority of stores were closed so we window
shopped - which is great for the wallet.
We admired the gold leaf signage (Doug Bernhardt thoughts???)
Then walked around some more before catching the train home.
I'll come back one weekend when the stores are open and I'm flush with cash.
