Kingston offers a visual essay of two unique communities that put
aside rivalry and distrust to unite under one banner. Less than two
miles apart but light-years away in appearance and personality,
uptown Kingston and downtown Rondout Landing joined to form the
city of Kingston in 1872. Founded as a stockaded settlement in
1658, uptown was where New York State's constitution was written in
1777. In the nineteenth century, the port downtown swelled with the
influx of immigrants who gradually transformed the waterfront into
a thriving maritime village. The work of immigrants' hands is still
evident in the Rondout National Historic District, and the
Revolutionary War-era limestone houses still stately stand in the
Stockade National Historic District uptown.
