The Street That Built a City McEntee’s Chestnut Street, Kingston, and the Rise of New York

by Lowell Thing

The “city” is New York and the street that built it—or much of it—is on a quiet hilltop overlooking the Hudson River a hundred miles north of New York’s harbor. Chestnut Street’s first resident, James McEntee, was an engineer who helped build the Delaware and Hudson Canal, which brought millions of tons of coal from Pennsylvania to the port at Rondout to be hauled down the Hudson River on barges pulled by steamboats belonging to another Chestnut Street resident, Samuel Coykendall, to fuel a rapidly growing New York City. Seven owners of brickyards lived on the street, and their hundreds of millions of bricks rose skyward in New York while bluestone slabs shipped from nearby Wilbur paved the city’s sidewalks.The rest of the illustrious residents of Chestnut Street are duly chronicled in the amazing 342 page history of Kingston's connections to Manhattan.
