Peekshill, New York

Peekskill is a city in Westchester County, New York. It is situated on a bay along the east side of the Hudson River, across from Jones Point.

Referred to by the newspaperman in Lowry's short story 'In Le Havre' as well as other towns in county of WestchesterChappaquaDobbs FerryLarchmontMamaroneckMount Kisco and Ossining. Not visited by Lowry at time of story. Possibly influenced by Jan Gabrial who had helped Lowry write the story.
