Currently a Work in Progress, hope to get this mostly done in the next week.

Kingston City Hall and Downtown Kingston Kingston is found on the Canadian side of the eastern end of Lake Ontario, where the lake runs into the St. Lawrence River and the Rideau Canal begins. The population of the city proper is about 118,000, while the population of the metropolitan area is about 152,000. Kingston is nicknamed the "Limestone City" because of the many historic buildings built from the local limestone.

Kingston's Population is made up primarily of 3rd and 4th generation Canadians of mostly European descent. However, there is a significant amount of students (approximately 10% of the city's population) that bring in a large amount of diversity to the City's downtown area.
