A long-time resident of the Manayunk neighborhood of Philadelphia. One clue as to whether someone is a Yunker (pronounced Yoonk-er)is their pronunciation of the word Manayunk. Newcomers emphasize the first syllable (MAN-a-yunk) while Yunkers emphasis the last syllable (Man-a-YOONK).
How do you like your neighbors on Cresson St.?
I don't know. I've been there 6 months and they still haven't talked to me. They're real old-school Yunkers.
