Very much the Island's capital, the city of Kingston
dominates Jamaica politically, commercially and culturally.

Its estimated 700,000 inhabitants represent almost a third of the entire population. From steamy plain to balmy hills, from gospel tent to cathedral, hovel to high-rise it is, like all cities, a place of stark contrasts: goats browse along the concrete pavements, pushcarts jostle crissers (late model cars) along the traffic choked streets and sidewalk vendors sprout beside ostentatious shopping plazas.
