    Welcome to the City of Kingston, NY

    Historic Churches

    Kingston is home to many historic churches. The oldest church still standing is the First Reformed Protestant Dutch Church of Kingston which was organized in 1659. Referred to as The Old Dutch Church, it is located in Uptown Kingston. Many of the city's historic churches populate Wurts street (6 in one block) among them Hudson Valley Wedding Chapel is a recently restored church built in 1867 and now a chapel hosting weddings. Another church in the Rondout is located at 72 Spring Street. Trinity Evangelical Lutheran Church was founded in 1849. The original church building at the corner of Hunter Street and Ravine Street burned to the ground in the late 1850s. The current church on Spring Street was built in 1874.

    Kingston became New York's first capital in 1777, and was burned by the British on October 13, 1777, after the Battles of Saratoga. In the 19th century, the city became an important transport hub after the discovery of natural cement in the region, and had both railroad and canal connections.

    The town of Rondout, New York, now a part of the city of Kingston, became an important freight hub for the transportation of coal from Honesdale, Pennsylvania to New York City through the Delaware and Hudson Canal. This hub was later used to transport other goods, including bluestone. Kingston shaped and shipped most of the bluestone made to create the sidewalks of New York City.

    12/13/2022 - Statement from Mayor Noble on the new hospital


    December 13, 2022


    Statement from Mayor Noble on the new hospital:

    Tomorrow, December 14, 2022, starting at 6:00am, the Kingston hospital on Broadway will close and HealthAlliance will begin to move patients to the new hospital located at 105 Mary’s Avenue.

    The new HealthAlliance hospital is a state-of-the-art, two-story, 79,000 sq ft. facility that was funded with $88.8 million from the New York State Capital Restructuring Financing Program. With this over $100 million investment into accessible healthcare right here in heart of our city, this hospital relocation fits with our overall vision for improving the daily health and wellness of all our residents in the City of Kingston. We are a growing community, and with this hospital expansion meets the needs of our residents. 

    My role as Mayor is to ensure that our residents have the services they need to live a vibrant, healthy life and that is not possible without a well-funded, well-staffed hospital system. I am hopeful that WMC Health will be good partners in this effort.

    I want to thank Governor Hochul, WMC Health, and our community for rallying behind this investment in local healthcare. I want to thank the dedicated healthcare workers who serve our residents each and every day, and who are working to make this move seamless.

    I ask the public for their patience during this transition on Wednesday. You may seem ambulances moving patients from the former hospital to the new campus on Mary’s Ave. Please make way for these vehicles.

    I look forward to opening this next chapter of healthcare here in Kingston.
