Yonkers

As Westchester County’s largest city, Yonkers boasts a population of nearly 200,000 people. The city is home to a diverse mix of ethnic and racial backgrounds living in the urbanized downtown and wooded suburban neighborhoods. The ongoing revitalization campaign has resulted in the development of the scenic Yonkers Downtown Waterfront district, luxury lofts, four-star restaurants, and impressive public library among others. There is a little something for everyone in Yonkers, whether it’s shopping at Ridge Hill or newly-renovated Cross County Shopping Center, entertainment at the popular Empire City Casino, or cultural amenities like the Hudson River Museum. Residents are also able to enjoy some of the best-rated schools in the region, top-ranked medical care, and a variety of beautiful public parks. Sometimes referred to as the “Sixth Borough,” Yonkers often serves as a gateway to New York City. As a result, Yonkers has often attracted filmmakers earning it location credits in productions like A Beautiful Mind, Zoolander, and The Sopranos
