Just a few decades ago, the Bronx landscape used to be pretty different; now the same can be said for Yonkers.

A city with a strange inferiority complex. People try to say they live somewhere else even tho there in Yonkers.
Sarah Lawrence College is in "Bronxville".
Crestwood is "Tuckahoe"
The northeastern part is "Scarsdale"
and the southwestern part is "really close to Riverdale"

Cool place to hang out, the only city in Westchester county NY that isn't lame.
Yonkers is where all the cool, interesting working-class people live, the rest of the county is a bunch of stuck-up upper middle class whitebread countryclub goers.

a city so big the north and south are connected by a major highway. once a beautiful place now turned ghetto, both north and south. coyle pl, intervale pl, mclean ave, and caryle ave are all now hard. some of the north is still at its height, but it wont last very long, schools ARE laying off teachers and the board of ed is missing 600k. As someone once sed, take out staten island and make yonkers the 5th bourough of nyc, seeing as how it's about 10 minutes to manhattan (no traffic). Its still hot to hang out there because it is so commercialized.

What should be the 5th borough of NY
Incorporate Y-O and get rid of Staten Island, it has nothing in common with the rest of the city and it smells like Jersey

A city that people in Westchester get lost in and say to themselves "This is actually part of Westchester?" Yonkers is becoming more and more like the Bronx every day, especially the neighborhoods to the south and to the west. It ranges from the end-of-the-Earth looking areas on Tuckahoe Road to lower middle class guido areas in the southeast to horrible ghettos in the Nodine Hill area.
Strangely enough, Yonkers and Scarsdale are both in Westchester County, but then again the destitute city of Newark as well as the upscale burg where Tony Soprano lives are both in Essex County.
