Beacon has experienced a revival in recent years at the hands of artists drawn by DIA: Beacon. Today, traditional Main Street and diverse housing options are combined with artists' lofts, restaurants, galleries, and pubs in renovated historic mills and factories.
Peak hour trains from Beacon to Grand Central take about 75 minutes.
