Apparently, the NYC had two telegraph offices at Kingston, NY. One was named "KY," the other "KI." Where were they?

KI was the old passenger station where the Catskill Mountain Branch took off and also crossed on a diamond at one time while KY was north of that point in the area of the yard.

I did not quote the hours for KI because it varied depending on the timetable then in effect.
