Yonkers Downtown Waterfront District
The Downtown Yonkers Waterfront District is a historically industrial waterfront composed of interesting architecture, historic buildings (including St. John's Church, Phillipse Manor Hall, and the former Otis Elevator Building), incredible views of the Palisades, and ground zero for the tech, art and film movement.
This quaint has all of the historic charm of a Hudson River front city, but has the grit, innovation, and creative drive that makes the City of Yonkers a truly unique place to live, work and to visit. Within the very walls of the Otis Elevator plant where the elevator breaks were invented, is the modern manufacturing of digital apps by IAC Applications. Incredible restaurants, Yonkers Brewing Co., and cultural hot-spots like the soon to be launched Warburton Galerie, as well as contemporary art galleries Urban Studio Unbound and Blue Door Art Gallery.
The Downtown Waterfront District also is home to public sculptures along the waterfront and murals by world renown artists Nick Walker, Damien Mitchell, Fumero, Crash and Bronx's very own Wall WorksNY.
