Kingston

Buying pastured beef at Fleisher’s and sipping Mother’s Milk at Keegan Ales might be a few of Kingston’s immediate draws, yet beyond the alluring façade of meat and beer lies a city recognized on state and national levels for its efforts to help citizens make smarter lifestyle choices.

In 2012, forward-thinking mayor Shayne Gallo started working with the Cornell Cooperative Extension of Ulster County to coordinate the leadership of Live Well Kingston. This coalition of businesses, organizations, and individuals backs initiatives to make the city more bike friendly, shift environmental policy, and provide better access to healthy foods. www.healthykingston.org
