A visit to Kingston – The Clermont

“The Clermont. 295-299 Wall St. Built in 1878 on the SW corner, The Clermont ranks as the finest surviving 19th century commercial building in the uptown business district. Outstanding features include the mansard roof with iron cresting and polychrome tile inserts in the brick walls” (A walking tour. The Stockade National Historic District of Kingston).

A visit to Kingston – The Stuyvesant Hotel

“The Stuyvesant Hotel. 289 Fair Street Built 1910-1911, the hotel was designed by architect J.A. Wood and named for the Director-General of New Netherland (1642-1664), Peter Stuyvesant. The hotel advertised its 150 rooms as the most modern in the Hudson Valley with hot and cold running water, electric lights and telephones. Vacant for more than 10 years, in 1993, it was restored by the RUPCO and converted into 40 apartments for the elderly and people with disabilities.” (A walking tour.

A visit to Kingston – Murals

Kingston certainly has some impressive murals. These are just a few that we bumped into. There are many more.

Above “Artemis emerging from the Quarry” (2013) by artist, Gaia.


“Pronkstilleven” – a Dutch term meaning ‚Äústill life”. Also by artist, Gaia. The two figures are artist, John Vanderlyn and Sojourner Truth, both of whom have connections to Kingston.
