Car: Recommended

The saint james is located in the historic stockade district of kingston. The drive from nyc is approximately one and a half hours.

Driving: take 87n from nyc straight up till you arrive at the kingston exit (right after the new paltz exit).

About kingston: kingston was the first capital of new york. Uptown kingston is home now to the most amazing restaurants galleries, and privately owned shops. Kingston was named one of the top places for artists by business week.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: Hi All, My name is Julian. I'm an artist living in Queens, NY. I love the energy of NYC and enjoy running around the tall building and loud streets. Sometimes it gets to be a bit much - which is why I purchased my home in Kingston. Kingston, like NYC, is also a center for arts, right in the middle of the Hudson valley. Unlike NYC, it offers laid back living and beautiful country scenery. Come visit Kingston (when I'm not enjoying it) and see what the Hudson Valley has to offer! Happy Travels, Julian
