KINGSTON PROFILE


Established as a trading post by the Dutch in 1616, Kingston became the first capital of New York by 1777.

Kingston is situated at the convergence of the Hudson River and Rondout Creek in the shadows of the Catskill Mountains.

The city delights in its past with several museums, boat tours on the Hudson and the preservation of centuries old architecture. Historic Bard College is just a few miles up the Hudson.
