Yonkers, NY is a Little Taste of Manhattan

I grew up in Yonkers and spent most of my teenage years there. I loved living there and go back to visit often. I love the hustle and bustle of Yonkers, and it comes without the expense of Manhattan. Plus, Yonkers is so close to New York City that it's easy to get there in just a quick 30 minutes. Yonkers has a little bit of everything, from entertainment for all ages and plenty of kid-friendly activities to high-quality shopping and an assortment of colleges to choose from. Yonkers may get a bad rap from people who aren't from New York because it's so close to the city, but in reality, Yonkers is full of some of the most down-to-earth, kind people you can find. Plus there are tons of dining options to choose from, whether you want to go out for a nice dinner with a big group of friends or order Indian or Thai food for delivery. It's not very easy to get bored in Yonkers, especially since a lot of the places you'll go are in walking distance. Much like Manhattan, Yonkers rarely goes to sleep and there's always something going on somewhere. In the summertime, there are plenty of beaches that are easy to get to and in the winter you're not far from the mountains of upstate New York. Yonkers does have a few drawbacks, though. There are a few bad places that you wouldn't want to wander into unknowingly, and it's important that you know where these areas of Yonkers are so that you don't get lost and in trouble. Yonkers can also be a bit expensive in comparison with other parts of the country, but it's not more expensive than most big cities. The benefits of living in Yonkers greatly outweigh the drawbacks, though.
