The City of Kingston, NY

    Welcome to the City of Kingston, NY

    Kingston, dating to the arrival of the Dutch in 1652, is a vibrant city with rich history and architecture, was the state's first capital, and a thriving arts community. City Hall is in the heart of the community at 420 Broadway, and is open from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., except July & August (9 a.m. to 4 p.m.).  Come tour our historic City, with restaurants that are among the region's finest, and local shopping that promises unique finds.

    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, NY

    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.

    Kingston, NY

    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.

    Foxhall Avenue 

    The City of Kingston is pleased to announce that restoration of Foxhall Avenue from Hasbrouck to Flatbush has been completed.

    News about future Foxhall Ave improvements: 

    The City of Kingston received a $3.6 million grant for the Safe and Accessible Flatbush and Foxhall Project, which will fund sidewalk and streetscape improvements from Colonial Gardens, where nearly 800 residents live, on Flatbush Avenue and along Foxhall Avenue to Broadway. The project will connect adjacent neighborhoods, commercial areas, a public pre-K school, and essential services. The grant will make this oft-traveled route ADA accessible, correct the intermittent and broken sidewalk network, and create bicycle infrastructure.

    In addition, two intersections and two railroad crossings that are greatly in need of improvement will get upgrades for pedestrian safety.

    This project has also been funded in part by the Climate Smart Community Grant Program, Title 15 of the Environmental Protection Fund through the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation.

     Construction is expected to begin in 2023.
