The downtown area, once the village of Rondout and now the Rondout-West Strand Historic District, borders the Rondout Creek and is home to recently redeveloped waterfront . The creek empties into the Hudson River through a large, protected tidal area which was the terminus of the Delaware and Hudson Canal, built to haul coal from Pennsylvania to New York City.

Kingston holds many festivals in the Rondout neighborhood, including the Kingston Jazz Festival and the Artists Soapbox Derby, and Drum Boogie.

A Nice Drive into Kingston N.Y.
I decided to take a drive into Kingston to see my old neighbors (we became good friends during the five years I lived there, and I promised that I would stop by periodically and visit). Well, they weren't home. So, I stopped by my friend Dave's place to see if he was up to hang out for a bit.
