Business Week breakfast held in Yonkers

Westchester County Executive Rob Astorino and local lawmakers gathered yesterday morning for breakfast to mark the 11th annual Yonkers Business Week.

The event was held by the Chamber of Commerce at X2O on the Hudson, a new restaurant that has played a major role in Yonkers' waterfront redevelopment.

City leaders say it's encouraging to be able to attract new businesses in a bad economy.

"We have to work harder to make the city attractive to those who want to invest their life's savings here," said Yonkers Mayor Phil Amicone.

In his keynote address, Astorino said with Albany in shambles, Westchester County and its municipalities can no longer rely on state aid for development.
