Most Expensive Yonkers Neighborhoods
Yonkers is a relatively large city located in the state of New York. With a population of 200,667 people and 52 constituent neighborhoods, Yonkers is the eighth largest community in New York.

Unlike some cities where white-collar or blue-collar occupations dominate the local economy, Yonkers is neither predominantly one nor the other. Instead, it has a mixed workforce of both white- and blue-collar jobs. Overall, Yonkers is a city of sales and office workers, professionals and service providers. There are especially a lot of people living in Yonkers who work in office and administrative support (14.25%), sales jobs (10.56%) and management occupations (8.18%).
Another interesting thing about Yonkers, despite not being a huge city, is that there is a relatively high proportion of people living here who are young, single, and upwardly-mobile professionals. This makes it a good choice for other relocating single professionals. Here, these young singles will find many others like themselves, with opportunities for friendships, socializing, romance, and fun.
One downside of living in Yonkers, however, is that residents on average have to contend with a long commute, spending on average 32.89 minutes every day commuting to work. It is, however, a pedestrian-friendly city. Many of its neighborhoods are dense enough and have amenities close enough together that people find it feasible to get around on foot. In addition, local public transit is widely used. For those who would prefer to avoid driving entirely and leave their car at home, it may be an option to use the transit instead.
Although the majority of commuting trips in the city are by private automobile, Yonkers is somewhat unusual for a city of its size for having a substantial number of people who use public transportation. For a lot of people, the bus helps to get to and from their jobs every morning, which benefits everyone in the Yonkers area by reducing both traffic and air pollution.
