Doers and Dreamers – Bryan Richardson

Cycling has become increasingly more popular, especially in areas like the Hudson Valley where the terrain is generally easy on the legs and the diversity of scenery always keeps things interesting. However, not everyone is opting for the super lightweight touring bikes or rugged mountain bikes with heavy duty suspensions. This week’s Doer and Dreamer […]

Doers and Dreamers – Sarah Litvin

Besides just attracting $$$$$ to the area, Kingston’s resurgence is drawing individuals with talent, energy, and ‘fresh eyes’ to the community which can translate to a more effective utilization of the assets that have always been here. The historic aspects of any locale can be leveraged to establish an identity, attract visitors, and ultimately investors […]

Doers and Dreamers – Elkin, Elkin, and Miranda Escobar

They say “nature abhors a vacuum”. Evidently, so does the pizza market because this week’s Doers and Dreamers resurrected a former pizzeria that was a victim of the infamous sinkhole of Washington Ave. which served a large, mostly residential area of Kingston for years.  There is an abundance of pizzerias in Kingston but these guys […]

Foodie Paradiso: First Capital Bistro is First Rate.

By contributing writer:  Susie Linn   Companion Two and I travel a great deal together. Sometimes we stay at bed and breakfasts, every now and again an inn, and when we want anonymity, a hotel.

Doers and Dreamers – KayCee Wimbish

The connection between kids, their food, and farming seems to be a natural relationship and it’s great to see the strong support for that relationship here in the City of Kingston. ‘Urban agriculture’ has become very popular and it’s a great opportunity to utilize small, available spaces near population centers to produce food and introduce […]

Doers and Dreamers – Jordan Scruggs

Yes, the Kingston area has had it’s share of artists, writers,musicians, media mavens, etc., descend upon it, but there are a number of others that are dedicated to working with our community in various capacities that have also moved to this area. We are certainly fortunate for that because not everyone has the desire to, […]

Doers and Dreamers – Jillian Fisher

It was certainly appropriate to photograph this week’s Doer and Dreamer in a thriving and venerable restaurant(the Hoffman House) that emanates the feel of 18th century tavern because her business is centered around exploiting the many assets of Kingston and its surrounding area. Historical buildings like the Hoffman House which date from the 17th century […]

Doers and Dreamers – John Krenek and Jamie Niblock

When your design skills are recognized by publications like Elle Decour, New York Home, and the New York Times, as well as by many well-to-do clients living in some of the money magnets in the U.S., it seems natural that curating products for a home furnishings retail store would be an easy road to success.
