Travel and Directions:

We don’t care how you get here, as long as you do!

Many Travel Choices:

Adirondack Trailways Buses:

Get the bus Directly to Kingston NY from NYC”s Port Authority.  It’s about a 2 hour ride (depending on traffic) .

The bus also comes in from Albany,  Long Island, White Plains, etc.

Metro North Commuter Trains
You can get the train from NYC’s Grand Central to Poughkeepsie, NY. The train also takes about 2 hours, but Poughkeepsie is  about 45 minutes away by car on the other side of the Hudson River.

Amtrak Trains
Less choices for schedules, a bit more expesive, but a tad  more relaxing and faster,you can get Amtrak from NYC’s Penn Station to Rhineclift, NY. The train also takes  less 2 hours, but Rhinecliff is  about 25 minutes away by car on the other side of the Hudson River.

Car:

Right off the New York State Thruway, exit 19; Kingston is 90 miles north of NYC and once you get across a bridge to the west side of the Hudson River, it’s a easy run.  Usually NYC to Kingston is about 2 hours depending on traffic and your personal speed preferences.

#UsDragons prefer:

  • Taking the George Washington Bridge over the Hudson and then immediately getting off on the Palisades Parkway!  ( exit 74 stay in the right lane)
  • Merge onto Palisades Interstate Pkwy N and drive for 18.6 miles
  • Take exit 9W to merge onto I-87 ( NYS Thruway)  and drive for 70.7 miles ( mile marker 90 if you liketo count those)
  • Take exit 19 toward NY-28/Kingston/Rhinecliff Bridge
  • At the traffic circle, take the 3rd exit onto I-587 E/NY-28 E
    Atthe end of I-587, there will be a traffic light. You will be at a weird corner, but you go as “straight” as you can  onto Broadway
  • Seven21 will be on your right!

There ARE Kingston area buses and taxis for local transportation, but it’s NOT NYC. Kingston taxis get called an hour before rather than flagged down.   Distances are bigger in the “country”, so a car can be very handy.   Let us know if you need some help or a ride.
