To obtain one of these artist lofts for living and working, the City's Artist Certification Committee must certify an individual as an artist, defined as:
"An individual who practices one of the fine, design, graphic, musical, literary, computer or performing arts; or an individual whose profession relies on the application of the above-mentioned skills to produce creative product; i.e. architect, craftsperson, photographer, etc."
The City, using a variety of grants, created an affordable cooperative loft project that was opened in 2002 and provides 28 new live-work spaces. Learn more about the Peekskill Art Lofts Coop.
