The Birches at Chambers

Dear Resident

Dear Resident of The Birches at Chambers,

Welcome! We are pleased that you have chosen The Birches at Chambers as your new home and we are glad that you are here.

By now you have received your mailing address with the correct “house number” and “unit number” on Maple Lane, Kingston, NY 12401. If you are going to have Verizon as your telephone provider, you may find that they have your apartment listed as the town of Ulster. This confusion over Kingston or Ulster does come up from time to time as they share a zip code. The Birches at Chambers is in the town of Ulster but has a Kingston mailing address! By the way, the phone number for Verizon is 845-890-1700.

Please contact Central Hudson Electric & Gas at 845-452-2700 to have the power transferred over into your name as soon as possible. We have provided you with your meter number to expedite the process. When you set up your account, please write down your account number and provide this information to the office.

Included on this site (and in the orientation binder you received) is general information to help orient you to your new home and surroundings. Our general website is, but you may go directly to your community website at

The Community Room located off the foyer of the 3000 Maple Lane entrance is a lively spot. There’s a potluck lunch every Monday, Bingo, and Game nights. Plus special events, like seasonal celebrations, pasta dinners and bagel brunch. To find out what’s happening ask the property manager for a copy of the most recent community calendar.

Our Senior Advocate, Alice Tipp, is available to help you with community resources. Alice is onsite for The Birches at Chambers and Chambers Court every Monday from 8am til 3pm. She hosts a gathering (potluck lunch) each week and frequently has speakers on a variety of topics relevant to our residents.

If you have any questions or if any maintenance issues come up, please contact us at 845-338-7571. Should you reach voice mail, please let us know that you are calling from The Birches at Chambers and provide both your unit number and your telephone number so someone can get back to you as quickly as possible. In the event of an emergency maintenance issue, please call our caretaker Jerry Coschigano at 845-417-2761.

Again, we welcome you to your new home and hope you enjoy living at The Birches at Chambers.
