KINGSTON, NEW YORK
The Architectural Guide
by William B. Rhoads, photography by James Bleecker
Discover the rich history of New York's first capital in nine illustrated walking tours. From venerable Dutch stone houses that survived the burning of the city by the British in 1777, to landmarks of the Victorian era and the 20th century. Explorers of Kingston are guided by detailed maps to over 130 sites that are fully illustrated and described-Greek Revival houses and Gothic Revival churches, picturesque cemeteries, the colorful Ruskinian City Hall, somber factories, a Hudson River lighthouse, World War II-era Quonset huts-revealing the varied fabric of a city vital to the Hudson Valley for 400 years.
