Get the door, it's the liquor store
Yonkers has played many roles in the ongoing history of the Young Republic, but perhaps its greatest contribution is and... will always be putting a smile on the face of anyone reading its name for the first time. Like, YONKERS, Scoob! Being just north of The Bronx, Yonkers is officially where New York City ends and the New York City Metropolitan Area begins. It’s where people move to “get away from the city,” mostly because Yonkers is less bonkers. The frenetic pace of NYC simmers to a low, pleasant bubbling. The neighborhoods start to look like, well, neighborhoods. The incessant din of traffic calms to a mellow rumble — very few honkers in Yonkers (sorry, last one). The city’s colonial history dates back to the mid-1600s when the area was, like much of NYC, farmland with an industrial waterfront. Today, it’s home to nearly 200,000 people and yet hasn’t lost that old-town charm. The “City of Seven Hills,” which includes Park, Ridge, Nodine, Cross, Locust, Church and Glen Hills, retains its green splendor, waterfront vistas, and lively but livable sense of community.
