A word adopted from the classic cartoon Scooby Doo. The word means for one to wait along period of time to do something.
"Jeez, this bus is taking yonkers!" moaned Stacey.
"Oh nut, doughnut!" replied Jack.

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.

Until recently, the 4th safest city in the United States. Mayor Amicone has ruined it for all Yonkers Citizens. Vincenza Restiano, candidate for 2008 mayoral race plans to change that. RESTIANO 2008.
Yonkers will be resurected from its tax grave when Vincenza Restiano takes mayoral posistion.

You fell off because you weren't holding the yonkers tight enough.
