Saw Mill River sees the light of day in downtown Yonkers

After nearly a century of being covered in concrete, the Saw Mill River is finally visible in downtown Yonkers.

A grand opening ceremony is taking place today for phase one of the multimillion-dollar "Saw Mill Daylighting" project.

The river was covered in order to make a parking lot in 1920s.

The festivities are taking place at the Yonkers Metro-North train station in Larkin Plaza.
