The Trolley Museum of New York (TMNY) has been in downtown Kingston on the Rondout Waterfront since 1983. TMNY became an established attraction on East Strand just as the area started its rise as a popular tourist destination and evening dining hot spot.

Now the Trolley Museum is a top thing to do for all visitors to the vital Kingston Waterfront!

The city's oldest institution, the congregation was organized in 1659. The 1852 Renaissance Revival style church, designed by Minard LaFever is its fourth home. Noted 19th century designer Calvert Vaux called the architecture "ideally perfect." The churchyard contains tombstones dating back to 1770, and the grave of New York's first governor, George Clinton, an Ulster County native.
