Yonkers

The 411: With almost 200,000 people living within its borders, Yonkers is Westchester County's largest city, and the fourth most populous city in the state—trailing only New York City, Rochester, and Buffalo. The city's residents are diverse, coming from a multitude of ethnic and racial backgrounds. The city is also large geographically, comprising a very urbanized downtown, densely suburban neighborhoods, and surprisingly green and wooded, less populous suburbs, especially towards its northern border. The city is in the throes of a full-scale revitalization campaign that started years ago with the redevelopment of its formerly blighted waterfront. Four-star restaurants, luxury lofts, and a shining public library now stand where abandoned industrial properties once languished. With much of the waterfront redevelopment nearing completion, the city has turned its attention inward. Buoyed by the success of its Empire City “racino,” the city is moving forward with plans for a downtown ballpark and multi-use complex, and ground already has broken on the mammoth Ridge Hill mixed-used development.
