Yonkers is not just some "ghetto north of the Bronx" that people think. 7/8 of Yonkers is not ghetto. In the east side, the outer borough waste stops at the city line and segues into a diverse, small-city atmosphere similar to that of the Bronx or Brooklyn when they were in their prime before the 1970s. The most heterogenous place in Westchester, Yonkers is almost seen as its own county. It is home to great Italian restaurants like Ferrara's and Valentino's, a wealth of Irish culture on McLean Avenue, and of course, Stew Leonard's and the signature racetrack. Definitely not a city to write off as "Bronx North" or just another Westchester suburb.
Though often less than picturesque, and with bad schools and a bad reputation and moderate crime in the southwest, there's nothing quite like it.
