The Hudson river flows (N to S) through Eastern New York. When mom and I visited Ghetty Square to get my passport, we also made sure to take a look at the river while we were there.
Just behind the Yonkers train station, there is a nice view of the water surrounded by Rockland counties, the Washington Bridge (to the far left) and a boat house (where there are tours and fishing).
Most of Yonker’s most important buildings are here. There’s the DMV (Department of Motor vehicles; where one gets their driver’s licence or renews car ownership/plates) as well as Yonkers Postal Office (the main branch office, where one goes for a passport– which isn’t cheap by the way!)
The city is also trying to revitalize the area by making gardens, condos, and public places filled with interesting stores.
