City Hall is in the heart of the community at 420 Broadway, and is open from a.m. Referred to as The Old Dutch Church, it is located in Uptown Kingston.
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.
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.
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.
