A BRIEF HISTORY OF NEW YORK'S ORIGINAL CAPITAL

Before this great little city was called Kingston it was called Esopus after a local Indian tribe. It was later renamed Wiltwyck which is Dutchfor wild area. Wiltwyck was one of the three largest settlements in New Netherland. When the area was taken over by the British in 1664 it was renamed Kingston. In 1777 Kingston became the first capital of New York.

I visit Kingston often because I have clients who live there. I have been able to see just about every aspect of the city and know first hand there are places and areas to avoid. A good example of a place to avoid in the King's Inn. Check out my tips to find out why. There are definately places that are a must see in Kingston. The Roundout Water Front is one of them.

I hope to add a great deal of information to this page in the near future. Until then I hope you enjoy my work in progress.
