Renovations to Yonkers waterfront may not be benefiting everyone

It's a tale of two cities near the newly renovated Yonkers waterfront.

On one end of the waterfront, 266 luxury apartments have been built. The rent for a one-bedroom apartment overlooking the Hudson is $1,300 a month. Across the train tracks a former trolley barn is being renovated into 40 lofts. And the price for a loft could be as much as $2,500.

But just a few blocks away from the newly overhauled waterfront, is a place that used to be considered Yonkers' riverfront address. The residents living along Buena Vista Avenue felt their portion of the waterfront has been neglected and forgotten.

One resident says she was looking forward to the renovations until she found out the area was going to be upscale. Others living on Buena Vista Avenue feel the renovated waterfront will be good for the city because people will be attracted to the area--at least part of the riverfront.
