Yonkers boasts 4-1/2 miles of waterfront on the Hudson River with a backdrop of the Palisades and the New York City skyline on the horizon. The waterfront's 19th and 20th century industrial heritage is being honored as new communities in which to live, work, and play are taking shape. Historical buildings are being restored and repurposed. Arts, entertainment, restaurants, and residences are injecting renewed energy into the downtown.
