What Bert Has To Say About Kingston Metro Area

Kingston is a pleasant but nondescript town in the Hudson River Valley south of Albany and 100 miles north of New York City. As the first capital of New York, the town contains some sites of historic interest enhanced by the nearby mansions of 19th-century tycoons such as the Vanderbilt family. The setting is attractive and nearby Catskill Mountains ski areas and the Ashokan Reservoir provide some recreation,
