Beacon is often stereotyped to be a picture-perfect Hudson Valley suburb of NYC.
The mayor of Beacon as of June 27th 2010 is hated even by Beaconites, in fact, Beaconites don't know what to say about them. He wanted to close down their on the spot and very helpful Fire Department Engine One, while residents easily signed a petition, and he's done other questionable actions to make life harder for Beacon residents.
Beacon has a grudge held towards it by the Poughkeepsie Journal newspaper. One can see this when articles about Beaconites are written like this fake obituary "Joe Smith, who was from Beacon a lifelong Beaconite, has died in his home in Beacon. He was from Beacon, and went to Beacon schools, and regularly attended games in Dutchess County and Beacon. He was a Beacon wrestler for his JV Beacon Bulldogs team in Beacon High School which is located in Beacon, New York."
Lifelong Beacon Resident: Where are you from?
Poughkeepsie Resident: Poughkeepsie.
Lifelong Beacon Resident: Lol, dang you guys got lots of problems... wow! I don't like Poughkeepsie.
Poughkeepsie Resident: What's the problem? Every area has good and bad to it--
Lifelong Beacon Resident: Lol, that's *coughs up flem from yesterday night's Friday Night Main Street party and spits while Poughkeepsie resident flinches* ta-- *ahem* that's mad funny, I'm dying *cough*!!! Hahaha, whatever *walks away, socially backs off and coughs a bit more flem up*
*Poughkeepsie resident walks away in disbelief*
2) How idiots spell "bacon".
My wife left me a note on how to make that omelette. I need eggs, cheese, green papers, diced ham and something called beacon.

Today, it is surrounded by Fishkill and Newburgh, both much less desirable places to live. Most of the activity in the city takes place on Main Street, which runs from the Fishkill creek to Rt.9. the schools are small, but have a lot to be desired, such as a working security dept. there is quite a marijuana and tobacco smoking problem in the city, particularly of adolescents in the school system. These crackheads in training take one step outside of the schools and smoke right next to the schools property and police on stand by who wont do a damned thing about it.
Beacon has several nice areas, but you have to sift through the rest, like the riverfront and east main, which are horrible areas to be caught in.
all in all, if you can sift through the bullshit, Beacon is a pretty nice albeit underrated area in Dutchess County
