The Kingston real estate market is pretty diverse, even compared to it’s neighboring Ulster County towns. In some areas of town it’s not difficult to find properties $100,000 or less, that, while they may need some work, have great potential.

We were inspired by the article, (and by the awesome food at these restaurants!) to compile a
