Crestwood Real Estate

Picture of Crestwood

With a population of 195,976, Yonkers is the fourth most populous city in the state of New York (behind New York City, Buffalo, and Rochester), and the most populous in Westchester County. The towns of Mount Vernon, Tuckahoe, Eastchester, Bronxville, and Scarsdale lie to the east, Greenburgh to the north, and the Hudson River to the west. Just south of Yonkers are the Riverdale and Woodlawn sections of the New York City borough of the Bronx.

The city's name comes from the title of its young Dutch founder, Adriaen Van der Donck, who was referred to as jonker, or "young gentleman."

Though Yonkers contains more than 37 distinct residential neighborhoods, it can be seen as having four basic quadrants. In Northeast Yonkers—the city's most suburban section—near the village of Tuckahoe, Crestwood is a 415-acre enclave of well-tended colonials, Tudors and Victorians and newer Capes and ranches. There are plenty of parks and green spaces here as well as sidewalks, and many families have lived here for generations. Street fairs, parades and Fourth of July celebrations are community highlights. Weekend farmers' markets are a popular gathering spot. The village is pedestrian-friendly, and families frequent Bronx River Parkway Oval with its bike paths and walking trails, ball fields and playground. The setting of Artist Norman Rockwell's iconic painting, "Commuters," features the Crestwood train station. Though there is no central business district, New York City is only 35 minutes away by train, and dining and shopping options can be found in Tuckahoe and Bronxville or on Central Avenue in Yonkers.

The Crestwood Metro-North Railroad station on the Harlem line is located in the village of Tuckahoe across the Bronx River Parkway. In Yonkers, four Hudson Line Metro-North Railroad stations—Ludlow, Yonkers, Glenwood and Greystone—provide commuter service to New York City. The Yonkers station is also served by Amtrak.

With New York City and Long Island Sound to the south, Putnam County on the north and Connecticut to the east, Westchester County holds the distinction of being the world's first large-scale suburb. Major interstate highways constructed during the 1950s and 1960s and the construction of the Tappan Zee Bridge encouraged corporations to build their headquarters here. A sweet spot for commuters traveling by car or by the Metro-North Railroad, today's Westchester is the location of many of New York City's most desirable suburban communities.
