On September 28, forty driving teams will roar onto Main Street Beacon on their “quest for under-discovered places and obscure historical artifacts” as part of this long-running reality tv series.
Mayor Randy Casale and his team are looking to do something really special and specific to Beacon – one idea was to paint the street; other ideas are welcome and there is a small budget to help make your vision a reality.
If you are interested, please be in touch with Mayor Randy Casale and/or his assistant Elizabeth Evans at cityofbeacon

I am looking to split a large 620 square ft studio on the 2nd floor in the old Beacon High School. It faces East and has huge windows for lots of natural light. I will be building out the space with fresh new walls creating two private spaces. Available starting July 1. Everything in the photos will all be gone in the next week by the current tenant. Asking $475 for 300 sq ft., although I am open to negotiate amount of space and price.
