Say Hello to Peekskill's New Fort Hill Apartments at The Abbey Inn


Peekskill Mayor Andre Rainey and Ginsburg Development Companies Principal Martin Ginsburg were among just some of the local legislators and developers on hand Wednesday, to commemorate the grand opening of the Fort Hill Apartments at The Abbey Inn.

The opening marks the culmination of more than a year’s efforts to completely transform the former St. Mary’s Convent property into a luxurious combination of homes, and inn, spa, and restaurant destinations. Ginsburg stresses the importance of retaining much of the historic location, once home to George Washington’s revolutionary lookout post (and the later setting for The Facts of Life).

“If we’ve done our job right, it’ll look like it’s always been here,” he says of designing in and around the rocky landscape.

The residence’s pool is nestled between waterfall and reflecting pool.

The Fort Hill Apartments will feature 178 brand new luxury rental units in one-, two-, and three-bedroom designs in three five-story buildings around a central courtyard. Many of the apartments feature Hudson view balconies and all with stainless steel appliances, designer baths, in-unit washer and dryer, and walk-in closets.


Apartments come in a variety of one, two, and three-bedroom layouts.

All residents can also access community amenities such as the fitness center with personal trainers, club lounge with televisions, kitchenette, and pool table, outdoor pool and barbecue pavilion, indoor garage and outdoor parking, complimentary shuttle to the Peekskill Metro-North, and of course special discounts at the spa and restaurant at the Abbey Inn. (Guests of residents can even get a special discount when staying at the 42-room Inn!)
