Kingston NY Celebrates the New Year!

New Year's Eve fireworks sponsored by Basch & Keegan - law firm in Kingston, NY.

It’s best to start a new year with something incredibly spectacular. Fireworks!

And a Midnight Ball Drop.

Our Kingston Uptown Community all came out for the evening, along with folks from neighboring towns – and even New York City!

What made our town different than Times Square?

It was a roll-back in time to past decades, replete with vaudeville acts, bands playing swing music, dress up, and cabaret. An Upstate New York cultural event that reverberated throughout and beyond the Kingston city lines. A large number of our finest restaurants left their doors unlocked late into the night, and participated in unique ways. Scrumptious after hours post-midnight breakfasts were prepared by Sissy’s Cafe and Duo Bistro, and Boiston converted their one-of-a-kind deck into the go-to place for cocktails and cigars. Around the corner at the area’s definitive drinking establishment, The Stockade Tavern, a Klezmer band played all the tunes that were known to compel foxtrots to spontaneously breakout across the dance floor. The BSP Lounge on parallel Wall Street kept the 2016 vibrations going late into the night with a kick drum thumping dance party. The mild early winter weather collaborated in a fairy tale favorable way, and shuttle busses were conveniently and safely operating to expedite travel within the Stockade District.

As John Lennon once said. “A splendid time is guaranteed for all!” He was certainly right.

Right on Time!

2016 did not disappoint or show up late for its party – it rolled in very shortly after 11:59:59 on December 31st, 2015. On the corner of Wall and N. Front Streets the ball dropped to its New Year destination. The expansive excitable crowd reacted with explosive cheers and applause. Everyone in attendance anticipated the start of a new yearly time frame – and the moment was enthusiastically embraced with passionate hugs and kisses.
