The City

Yonkers is a city of just over 200,000 people and is located right on the banks of the Hudson River. The city is known for both its diverse downtown area as well as its quiet tree-lined suburban neighborhoods. With its terrific quality of life, numerous outdoor activities, and easy livability, it’s no surprise that Yonkers has become a very popular place to call home.

Easy Metro Access

From your Yonkers apartment, you’ll enjoy easy access to public transportation that makes working in the city or just riding in on the weekends easy. Especially convenient for commuting is the Metro North train to Grand Central from the Greystone stop, on the Hudson line.

Esplanade Park and Walkway

One of the best ways to enjoy renting an apartment right on the Hudson is to spend some time at Esplanade Park. This waterfront park offers not only incredible views of the Palisades, but a pavilion, sculpture park, and the historic Municipal Pier all within a short walk.

Downtown Yonkers

If you’re looking for a more social scene, head right over to the downtown area. Located just a short walk from Esplanade Park, this area includes all the shopping and dining options you could want when you’re looking to have some fun and socialize.

A Paradise For Outdoor Lovers

One of the best parts about living in Yonkers is the close proximity to the area’s numerous parks, nature preserves, kayaking and boating options, hiking and biking trails, and two golf courses. If you’re an outdoor lover, you’ll never be without plenty of things to do within a short walk or drive from home. Untermyer Gardens is a historic 43 acre park that was previously part of an estate known as Greystone. It features this beautiful Hudson River vista staircase. You can also enjoy the aquatic center and fishing options available at nearby Tibbetts Brook Park.
