A Local Restaurateur’s Attempt To Rejuvenate Downtown Peekskill

It won’t be easy, but Louie Lanza thinks he might be up to the task.

There’s a renaissance happening in Peekskill. And Louie Lanza, who owned 12 restaurants in New York City between 1986 and 2008, is at the forefront.

“I’ve seen the potential for Peekskill for years,” says Lanza.

He’s now bringing his talents to the historic city with a mission to keep it unique, artsy, and intimate. Since opening The Hudson Room with partners Cheng Ling and Jose Quinoy last August, Lanza has gobbled up a few other properties. Here, he shares his plans for the city’s future.
