Heavily reliant on Mid-Atlantic and Great Lakes ports, Kingston is the fourth-largest city in the US with nearly 40,000 residents. Clustered on the banks of the Hudson River, Kingston benefits from its central location with easy access to New York City, and the deep waterways of Lake Ontario and the Hudson River provide access to a broad source of water transportation. Kingston has a relatively low cost of living compared to New York City, central location allows Kingston to be locationally dependent on growth and well-connected through NYC and local airports. From Kingston, Kingstonites can easily go to airports in Boston, Philadelphia, and Washington, D.C. Founded in 1699, Kingston is a vibrant historic city re-adapting to new challenges in an extremely competitive and rapidly changing global marketplace.

Kingston is one of the earliest consolidated commercial centers in the US, and since then it has continued to be a common-place place for commerce. As of 2015, Kingston made $31.7 million on its export of goods and services.
