YONKERS, N.Y. -- The revitalization of the City of Yonkers has caught the attention of the New York Times.

The Times did a feature on Yonkers as part of its "Living In" series, noting it as the location of Sarah Lawrence College and Yonkers Brewing Company.

Development along the Hudson River and the Saw Mill River has been coming to the city, replacing vacated industrial sites and hoping to lure people priced out of New York City, according to the Times.

The Times looked at places like Warburton Avenue, Getty Square, Main Street and North Broadway.

Rentals at the Hudson Park complex range from $1,750 to $3,000 a month, according to the Times, while condos have sold from $225,000 to $360,000.

The Times noted Yonkers has big city problems like crime, poverty, homelessness, empty storefronts and a school district with a "troubled history" that has schools that are "old" and "overcrowded,' despite some improvements.
