30 definition by YO MAN

A city of 72,000 in the suburbs of New York City. Borders New York City (The Bronx specifically) by water but not by land. Consists of two very contrasting parts. The northern half of New Ro is Wykagyl which is an upper middle class snobfest with this gay chain deli called Cosi which looks like Starbucks and caters to country club Westchester types. The southern half of New Rochelle, downtown, is run-down and depressed. Not much here besides New Roc City, a large entertainment complex with a movie theater charging $10 per ticket. Singer Don McLean grew up here and New Rochelle is said to be the home of American Pie. Actor Ossie Davis is a current resident. Also, Matt Dillon was born in New Ro but grew up in Mamaroneck, the next town up the sound.
Why the fuck does UrbanDictionary now REQUIRE examples? OK, they just said that first sentence was too short and Now this is pissing me off.

Mount Vernon, NY. Near Yonkers and the Bronx. Used to have a large Italian-American population in the 60s and 70s, then a large black population moved in and the Italians moved to Eastchester (the next town up). Since then it has turned into a shithole.
MurDaVille is near my hometown of Yonkers.

A neighborhood in the Bronx. Yes, THE BRONX. Anybody who says Riverdale is more like Westchester than the Bronx doesn't know their head from their ass. I would know because I grew up in Westchester and just transferred into Manhattan College, in Riverdale. It's in fact very much the Bronx in my opinion. Riverdale is nothing like where I grew up, which isn't even that far into Westchester County (Eastchester to be exact.)

Though Riverdale may not be a hardcore ghetto, it's not the only kinda nice neighborhood in the borough; last time I checked I wasn't looking over my shoulder in Woodlawn or Throgs Neck.
If a street with a 30-story apartment building and 5 small houses with no yards isn't the Bronx, then what is it?

The odd man out of the New York City boroughs. Staten Island is west of the Hudson and should be considered part of New Jersey. Kind of like how Marble Hill is on the mainland but is part of Manhattan. Go figure.
Growing up in Yonkers, Staten Island was like the moon: a shithole, no reason to there, feels a lot farther than it actually is, a place you see and hear about but still seems mythical.
