Right now there are a lot of run down areas and the entire main street of Broadway has old stores and sketchy neighborhoods. There are two growing areas in the city with new restaurants and buildings that are appealing. Many people come up to this area from the city for the beautiful scenery. If new residents continue to come and the buildings are cleaned up then I think Kingston can be very popular place to live.

I have lived in Esopus NY for 16 years and it is nice and quiet. It is very safe there has never been a crime committed there. It is a ltitle far from things but it is a good little country town.
Not much to do, lots of closed businesses. School gets lots of intercity kids who make it not so safe.
