Yonkers Renaissance: You Can Feel the Vibe***
The Yonkers renaissance is being driven by many factors including a growing demand by Millennials for transit-oriented development; a diverse population; an abundance of affordable loft space; a lively restaurant and arts scene; and a scenic Hudson River location that is less than 30 minutes by train to Grand Central Terminal. (The commute to Grand Central is quicker from Yonkers than from Williamsburg!)
Companies are also attracted to the city’s business-friendly environment under the leadership of Mayor Mike Spano. To capitalize on Yonkers’ unique selling points, the city launched in 2015 its highly successful Generation Yonkers marketing campaign, an innovative economic development initiative created to position Yonkers as the next great urban frontier. The campaign has put Yonkers on the map!
