Comments: I was born in Yonkers in 1963. We first lived on New Main Street, then moved to Knowles Street, then North Broadway, and finally Highland Avenue. I left in 1987. Many things about Yonkers are nostalgic for me, but I wouldn't move back there. By any chance, would you have any history on the Victorian mansion that stands at 584 North Broadway? This property use to be Greystone Jewish Center, and is now owned by Lubbavitchers.

Thanks for the memories. When I was there 50 some odd years ago, it still looked like the older photo. It sure looks different now.

Comments: We lived on the 1st floor of 305 Warburton Ave. from 1944 to 1952 when we moved to White Plains. House had been converted to a 4 family home. What fun! Trolley out front -- Trevor Park and PS 25 up the road -fabulous memories of biking, skating, sledding, just walking within view of the lovely Palisades. Taking the ferry and the Hudson River Day-liner were great adventures, and the trip to Catskill to my grandparents' farm took a whole day. I drove by #305 in Oct., and it was sadly fenced off and boarded up. What an adventurous childhood I had....without TV or computer games or Facebook, etc..... Toni (Iffland) Kiraly

Comments: Our family lived at 305 Warburton Ave. from spring 1944 to spring 1952 (Kdgn to 8th grade for me). We had the first floor of the old Victorian, and there were families on the 2nd and 3rd floors as well as in the basement It was a wonderful time in my life -- Trevor Park and PS. #25 and the trolley stopped right out in front of the house. Roller skating, bike riding, great fun! I was devastated when my folks decided to relocate to White Plains in spring of my 8th grade and I left Longfellow Jr. Hi for Eastview in WP. I have many fond memories of living on Warburton Ave. overlooking the majestic Hudson River. Toni Kiraly

Comments: I lived at 305 Warburton Ave. from 1944 to 1952 on the first floor of the subdivided home (4 apts. in all). It was a magical childhood--sledding in Trevor Park, walking along the Aqueduct, taking the trolley car everywhere, P.S. 25 and Longfellow Jr Hi-so much fun and good times, tho we were not rich in material things... The views of the Hudson and Palisades from our back porch...riding the ferry across to visit the other side of the river.. Taking the Hudson River Dayliner to Catskill. I revisited the Yonkers downtown Post Office a few years ago and was delighted to see the old lights outside which I balanced on while my mother was inside buying stamps. Many thanks for posting all these photos. Toni Kiraly

Comments: Love the comparison shots--especially 430 N. B'Way, which was part of my paper route from 1974-77. I lived next door at 440, aka the Colonial Town House Condos. Seriously, I can't even imagine the beautiful home they knocked down to build that! As another poster mentioned, I never appreciated the neighborhood or the view then. I was fixated on the view south to Manhattan!

Comments: I am enjoying all of the pictures of Yonkers so much. I was born and raise in Yonkers but moved to Dutchess County 7 years ago. I was wondering if you might have any old pictures of Cook Ave. My husband and I lived at #112 across from Redmond/Cook Field and my boys played in the field all the time growing up. I would love to be able to show them some old pictures from our street. Thank you for doing such a great job.

Comments: I lived at 19 Cedar Place, Livingston Avenue near Morris Street, and Cook Avenue in Dunwoodie.Our last relatives and myself either moved northward or out to Long Island by the 70's. Was in Yonkers a few years ago and was saddened by loss of Carnegie Library on Broadway and St. Andrew's Episcopal church looking as if it had been bombed in a war. Have wonderful memories of the Getty House on Cedar Place. Does anybody else remember it?

Comments: What a simply wonderful site. I've lived in Yonkers all my life, as have my father and his family. He was born on Nepperhan Ave in 1915 and worked in the Carpet Shop. Growing up we lived on Lamartine Avenue, 122 Warburton, next to the Claremonts of the Ice Cream Palor fame, Palisades and High and then when married I settled on Locust Hill Ave before moving to East Yonkers. I remember so many of the homes you have displayed and marvel that some are still around to be lived in.

Comments: I stumbled upon your site while looking for photos of Untermeyer Park. I live in Texas, but grew up in Yonkers. Lived on St.Andrews Pl.as as child, then off Lockwood Avenue. Moved away in 1980. My friend JoAnn and I roamed all over the city as children, unsupervised, as our mothers had to work. We rode our bikes to lovers lane, getty square, van cortlandt park, etc.... beginning around age SIX! Also we would go to the park hill movie in the summer and stay in there all day. Then go across to moons chinese and get egg rolls. Great memories. Today our parents would probably be arrested for letting us roam free as we did. Was there a Francis Edwards ice cream parlor? I am going to pour over your website tomorrow, will bookmark it. Thanks !

Comments: My grandparents immigrated to Yonkers following the US Civil War. Grandfather John H. Schlobohm served in the US Army aboard a hospital ship and was present at the firing on Fort Sumpter in Charleston, SC.He served prior to and for 2 years after the war and settled in Yonkers. He served on Yonkers Common Council and was Council president for several years. He owned the property at 130 as well as 114 Warburton and others in Getty Square. The 130 Warburton Ave. property is listed in the Victorian Homes section. The listing shows the owner as an OE Carpenter in 1889. My father Frederick J Schlobohm and several aunts and uncles(now deceased) were born at this address and my brother Thomas D Schlobohm and sisters Sandra Jane Schlobohm Green and Joann Gretchen Schlobohm Griffin spent many an hour here. The property was sold and eventually demolished in the 1950s to the best of my recollection. 130 backed up to the National Guard Armory property. I have found this site very informative.

Comments: Just found your sight on a "Google" search and love it! I am a resident of the Bryn Mawr section of Yonkers and the very proud owner of a 100 year old Dutch Colonial Revival. We have had many of the previous owners of the house stop by to share their stories and some photos...some of which date back to the '40's. I was wondering if you could offer a suggestion as to where I could possibly find more info about my home. I'm guessing City Hall? I would also be curious about the landmarking process as I would hate to see this little beauty demolished to build a "McMansion" which is all too sadly the trend these days. Is it possible to preserve these old beauties from such a fate? Any info you could provide would be appreciated. Thank you for this wonderful site!
