Yonkers City Hall and its war memorial, on South Broadway

Yonkers is in Westchester County and the fourth largest city in New York state. It is a suburb of New York City and directly borders the Bronx borough of New York City.

Get in

The South County Trail Way is a well paved north-south bikeway through the middle of Yonkers, south to The Bronx and north to central Westchester County.

By plane

The three major airports in the New York City area offer service to just about anywhere. Westchester-based taxi and livery cars offer regular service to and from the three internationals from most areas of the county. New York City yellow cabs must take to you Westchester, but the fares can be expensive, especially as they double upon crossing the city line. Instead, ask if your hotel offers shuttle service.
