The Community of Yorkville Survives Gentrification 4 rating By Anonymous ( Jun 10, 2014) I grew up in Yorkville, New York in the eighties. The neighborhoods were very close knit and if you did something wrong while you were out playing, your parents were informed before you even got home in time for supper. Usually when people think of someone from New York, they ima ...Read More gine a fast talking, fashionable business person of stature. Those of us from Yorkville though, are actually the typical small town, friendly type. We prefer blue jeans over slacks, and we love our sports.

My aunt still lives in Yorkville, and when I return home I am always fascinated at the changes that have taken place. The neighborhoods are still lined with vintage homes and manicured yards with big trees, but there has been an emergence of newer town-homes and apartments. They look somewhat misplaced among the older homes, but they are a sign that as time moves forward so does small town America and they attract more people to the area, and actually raise the surrounding property values.

The population in Yorkville was once saturated with friendly German immigrants, and that culture was apparent throughout town. Small mom and pop shops, German delis and the like were everywhere. Today, Yorkville has become a more culturally diverse town. I have watched the small shops be replaced with Dunkin Donuts and national chain stores, but if you look close you can still get one of the best tomato pies that has ever graced your taste buds.

On any given sunny day you can head over to Robak Park and catch a group playing a game of baseball. If you happen to enjoy the sport, you can join simply by asking permission. If you aren't a fan of baseball, bring a sack lunch- and don't mention that to anyone. Adults can always be entertained during hockey season by going out to any of the pubs. There will always be a debate and it will always be interrupted by cheers when the favored team scores. These are a couple things that will never change in Yorkville.

You are guaranteed to hear people speaking about how much Yorkville has changed, I myself have watched it over the years. Truth is- everything changes with time; however, the one thing that hasn't changed is the 'feel' of Yorkville. Despite the changes in the general demographics, one thing hasn't changed- the community is still close and there are still a few of the grandmothers left that will call you in a heartbeat if your child isn't following rules.
