Popular online news source, the Huffington Post, made a list of the best places to visit in the fall in the United States. Beacon, New York, where Niche is located, is one of those best places! 


Here's what contributing writer, Holly Rosen Fink, had to say about our fair city: 


Beacon, New York

Located on the Hudson River just 60 miles north of New York City, Beacon is a small town that has a warm feeling that's sprinkled with art, culture, Victorian architecture, good food, boutique shopping and the outdoors. The town offers a plethora of fall activity including the annual Beacon Waterfront Pumpkin Festival and apple-picking at Fishkill Farms where they offer 15 kinds of apples. While in town, be sure to visit Dia: Beacon, a modern art museum housed in a former Nabisco factory that contains a collection of the Dia Foundation of art from the 1960s to the present.

Where to StayThe Roundhouse at Beacon Falls is located right on Fishkill Creek overlooking Beacon Falls, just minutes from Mount Beacon and steps away from the heart of Main Street. It hosts 14 chic hotel rooms, two restaurants - one inside, one outside - both facing the waterfalls, a yoga studio and spa.


Thanks for making Beacon look good, HuffPost! And in case you missed it, The Roundhouse interior (pictured below) was designed by Elizabeth Strianese, last week's Designer Spotlight, AND features custom Niche Helio pendants. Read all about it here!
