Synopsis: A study in contrasts, Yonkers, a sprawling city 20 miles north of
midtown Manhattan, traces its roots to early Dutch settlers. Yonkers has a history of retail, boasting one of the first shopping malls in the United States, but prides itself on its backbone of mom-and-pop businesses. Seabiscuit, the legendary racehorse, once stood in the winner’s circle at Yonkers Raceway. The city has 38 distinct neighborhoods, each with its own character and identity. Yonkers was home to some of the 19th century’s wealthiest industrialists and inventors whose innovations, such as the Otis safety elevator, Armstrong’s FM radio, Harvey’s elevated railroad, and Smith’s carpet looms, shaped the world we know today. Currently, the city with a rough-and-tumble, blue-collar waterfront is undergoing dramatic revitalization.

About the Author: Joan Jennings was born and raised in the Nodine Hill section of Yonkers and is a third-generation resident. Jennings made the history of Yonkers her passion and is currently president of the Friends of Philipse Manor Hall, a nonprofit group of volunteers that supports programming at the Manor Hall. She is also on the board of the Yonkers Historical Society. A professional photographer, Joan contributed to Arcadia Publishing’s Then & Now: Yonkers.
