Everything old is new again. And for Kingston, one of New York’s oldest cities and former capital, change is happening everywhere. Recently dubbed “Brooklyn North” by NYC media, Kingston is in the midst of an exciting renaissance as the result of an influx of tech start-ups, artists and entrepreneurs drawn by its historic ambiance, affordable housing stock and an unparalleled location with the majestic Hudson River on the east and the Catskill high peaks to the west.
Three distinct areas define the urban geography. The Stockade, the city’s oldest, is steeped in Colonial era history and is the main commercial hub with abundant shops, restaurants and nightlife venues plus amazing vintage architecture. The Mid-Town Arts District parallels the Broadway thoroughfare and is anchored by the Ulster Performing Arts Center and arts-oriented studio and loft conversions in former manufacturing buildings. The Rondout area is an historic waterfront featuring marinas, restaurants, galleries and the Brickyard, a recent developed Hudson River front event, concert and “glamping” venue on the site of a renowned brick factory.
Amazing Real Estate opportunities abound across all price ranges, styles and eras – classic frame or brick two story townhouses, the grand homes of the former industry titans, historic Colonial era houses, entire neighborhoods of Mid-Century era and “Modern” style development and up-to-the minute contemporaries. Whatever your personal taste and budget, there’s opportunity for you in a culturally exciting urban environment with easy access to some of the country’s most iconic geography and opportunity to enjoy nature’s bounty.
