"A beautiful side to Yonkers"

Northwest Yonkers is ideal for commuting in to New York City. There are two train stations in the area, Greystone and Glenwood, and are easily walkable. The views of the Hudson River are beautiful, particularly at sunset, and there are plenty of spots to take in the view. Unless of course you are lucky enough to live on the waterfront. Untermyer Park is right on the river and is not your typical park. It was formerly the gardens of a huge mansion that was replaced by the hospital. You can expect to find walls, statues, fountains, and a gazebo. It's fun to explore even though it may not sound like it.

Towards the border between Northwest and Northeast Yonkers is Sprain Ridge County Park. This park is massive and has lots of trails and a swimming pool. Many Yonkers residents flock here in the summer.

The houses in Northwest Yonkers vary greatly but the ones directly on the water are Victorian era and stunning.

There are lots of shopping and restaurant options in the north end. You'll have no problem finding what you're looking for especially with New York City so close.

Unfortunately the school system in Northwest Yonkers isn't very good. Typically Westchester County schools rank high but Yonkers falls short.
  • Beautiful Views of the Hudson
  • Lots of shopping and restaurant options
  • School system doesn't rank very high
