Very pleased with my location
I've lived in this city for over 20 years in the Bryn Mawr section and I love it. We are the closest suburb to NYC. I can go and watch a broadway show and be back at home in minutes. My neighborhood is clean, quiet, safe and friendly. I have no problem with parking. There's always parking. However the schools need a little Read More

Great to raise kids but it is time to leave (San D
My family and I have lived in northeast Yonkers for 18 years after leaving the grime and crime of Manhattan (my home).
I bought a cute colonial on a quiet street 11 years ago and have raised 2 of our 4 children here. Public schools are pretty bad but there is close to zero crime and noise. Sadly, the housing market flipped and I owe more than my house is worth. I am retired and have arthritis so the time is ripe to relocate. I recently visited San Diego on a short trip (six days)and enjoyed the laid-back pace and the chattiness of its residents. I recently retired and have a six figure pension/SS benefit but still have 2 kids living with me and my wife is younger and still working. My son would love to live here as would I.
Opinions on relocating (I still own an underwater home in Westchester that is going to a beast to sell)? vere weather shifts of this area are really tough on me physically. Read More

Only the cities are a little cheaper...but they have some of the other problems associated with most cities, not the least of which are many of the problems with big city schools in most parts of the Read More

Don't do it to yourself!
I have lived in Yonkers over 20 years now and I can tell you that the cost of living here is ridiculous. The school system is awful. We have had scandals here with our Board of Education for a long time. The price for renting a one bedroom is about $1,100 per month. The whole area is on the decline even with the so called "Urban Revitalizations." If you can make it where you are...don't move Read More
