Kingston is a city located in Ulster County, New York, United States. As of the 2000 census, the city had a total population of 23,456.
The City of Kingston was first called Esopus after a local Indian tribe, and later renamed Wiltwyck (Dutch: wild woods). It was one of the three large settlements in New Amsterdam. After the Dutch colony was taken over by the British in 1664, the settlement was renamed Kingston. In 1777 Kingston became the first capital of New York since Albany was occupied at the time; it was burned by British troops as a result.
