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.

    The Common Council of the City of Kingston will hold a public hearing on June 3, 2024 at 6:30 PM at Kingston City Hall Council Chambers, 420 Broadway, Kingston, NY and livestreamed via YouTube for the purpose of hearing public comments on the City’s Mobile Mental Health program funded by Community Development Block Grant CV CARES (CDBG-CV CARES). The CDBG program is administered by the New York State Office of Community Renewal (OCR), and has made available to eligible local governments approximately $78 million for the 2022 program year for housing, economic development, public facilities, public infrastructure, and planning activities, with the principal purpose of benefitting low/moderate income persons and to prepare, prevent, or respond to impacts of COVID-19 and potential variants or future pandemics.

    The City of Kingston will have received approximately $321,000 in CDBG-CV CARES funds by project completion to support a Mobile Mental Health Co-Response Team program, which pairs a mental healthcare specialist with a Kingston Fire Department Emergency Medical Technician to staff a mobile response unit. The team has a dedicated ambulance and provides person-centric crisis response to mental health emergency calls. The team works weekdays from 10:00am to 6:00pm, and responds within the City of Kingston. In 2023 the program supported 288 people with assessment of safety and risk, behavior modification and activation, case management, empathetic/emotional support and validation, motivational interviewing, relaxation and DBT techniques, safety planning, psychoeducation, and supportive counseling. The program will continue in 2024. The team can be dispatched through the County’s 911 system, direct calls to the program, and from follow-ups on individuals discharged from the hospital.

    The hearing will provide further information of the CDBG-CV CARES program and will allow for citizen participation. Comments on the CDBG-CV CARES program will be received at that time. The hearing is being conducted pursuant to Section 570.486, Subpart I of the CFR and in compliance with the requirements of the Housing and Community Development Act of 1974, as amended.
