I can appreciate Ms. Botton's sentiments, but life is dynamic. Kingston offers former Manhattanites/Brooklyites, like myself, that perfect mix of the NYC we loved but slowed down. I enjoy running through the Rondout and saying hello to my neighbors, dining on local cuisine and being a stone's throw from everything.
Kingston will experience a renaissance, and I hope to have a hand in it. However, it will not be the kind of massive gentrification that NYC has experienced, and continues to experience.
Kingston is the perfect "borough" that's just a little north of its larger siblings.
