Kingston is located on the western bank of the Hudson River and is about 90 miles north of New York City. Kingston was initially settled in the mid-17th century and was the state's first capital during the Revolutionary War. Because of its rich history housing styles range from modest 20th century ranches to grand 19th-century Victorians and pre-Revolutionary stone structures and homes. Kingston is divided into three districts on the National Register of Historic Places.
The Stockade District is one of the three historic districts registered by The National Register of Historic Places. This district is also known as Uptown Kingston. The Saint James Kingston is located in this historic district which contains about 21 Dutch-style stone buildings-many of which were built before 1700! Kingston is home to many new restaurants, bars and shops which have all been recently acclaimed by numerous publications including the Wallstreet Journal and The New York Times. The excerpt below was taken recently from The New York Times in 2013- it describes a few "IT" spots:
Stockade Tavern: Opened three years ago, selling sophisticated cocktails in a one-time Singer sewing machine factory in Kingston’s 17th-century Stockade District, the bar’s arrival foreshadowed changes for New York’s former capital.
Boitson’s: A stylish American bistro with leather banquettes and marble-topped tables, which opened uptown in June 2010. It offers comfort foods like fried chicken and steak frites, and has an all-New York State beer list and a wide selection of American wines.
Elephant: A wine and tapas bar around the corner from the Stockade in Kingston’s uptown, and a pioneer of sorts: it opened five years ago in the former recording studio of the cult-indie band Mercury... “We just decided we would do what we wanted, and play punk rock and serve beef-heart tacos and pig tails,” Ms. Karrol said.
BSP Lounge: Enthusiastic new management and has become a sort of musician’s living room, hosting local and touring bands in a former vaudeville theater.
Rondout Music Lounge: Maritime aesthetic that evokes the nearby Hudson River Maritime Museum and the casual welcome of a neighborhood coffeehouse.
