KINGSTON, NY DETAILS



ABOUT:

There are two separate municipalities for Kingston:
The City of Kingston and the Town of Kingston.

The City of Kingston's small businesses, arts and tourism provide dynamism in a city that maintains its historic character: from the scenic Rondout waterfront downtown, to the historic Stockade district uptown, to the restored 19th century City Hall and Ulster Performing Arts Center in midtown.

The city's heritage includes being the first capital of New York State and its long tradition as an economic center, which took root in the 17th century as one of the three earliest Dutch Settlements in New York. Permanently settled in 1652, the area became a crossroads for trade in pelts, leather and agricultural products. In the 19th century, manufacturing bypassed agriculture as an economic force, benefiting from the city's strategic placement at the intersection of the Hudson River and Rondout Creek. The Hudson River, the D&H Canal and the railroad became the three key elements in Kingston's rapid growth, giving it an international name as the world's largest producer of bluestone.

The Town of Kingston consists of the hamlets of Sawkill and Stony Hollow. The town, to this day, retains its essentially rural character.

Incorporated in 1688 and settled by the late 17th century, the Town of Kingston was never part of the City of Kingston. Prior to 1879, the Town of Kingston was one of the largest towns in the state, with boundaries from Saugerties to Eddyville.
