KINGSTON, N.Y. -- An empty storefront on Broadway got a new look as it is turned into a temporary showcase for all things made in Kingston.
The transformation of the store, located at 572 Broadway, is part of the Made In Kingston event.
Organizers said it's a celebration of the city's artists, innovators, and manufacturers.
City businesses displayed everything from movie props, to raw rye whiskey, to hot sauce.
"We've got quite a cluster now in Kingston of these businesses,” said event organizer Pat Courtney-Strong. “They find that the rent is very affordable, they find that they're close enough to New York City that they can get down there very quickly and then of course there is a tremendous local community that is happy to have them."
The project is complementary to the Mayor's BEAT initiative which stands for Business Education Arts and Technology.
