“It's ok small time America. That's it.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 28, 2013

I grew up here and remember when this area was it. Thee place to go. It was beautiful. Now…not so much. Kind of a sort of run down old tired business district. Sad

“Very interesting area, shops and cafés”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 26, 2013

Normally when meeting people in Kingston, we wind up at restaurants on the river. Today, we decided to meet at a cafe on Wall St. I don't think I had ever been in this area of Kingston before. It is well worth a trip!

Driving in, you pass VERY old stone houses that I wish I had more time to look at. Very surprised to find a city area, clearly the commercial center of the city at one time filled with interesting shops, eclectic cafés, antique and other shops. Also some very interesting historical plaques.

Ver much worthwhile to head there for lunch and spend some time walking around!

“Walk back in time”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 29, 2013

Kingston, the first capitol of New York has a beautiful, old, historic district. Buildings date back to the mid 1600's. Easy paved sidewalk walking, numerous eateries, and many historical markers make this a nice morning's activity.
