Three small charter buses dropped off around 40 adults and a couple of dozen small children -- the first group of migrants to be sent to Westchester from New York City.
There was a mix of fear and relief on many of their faces as exhausted kids wrapped in blankets held onto stuffed animals.
Throughout the evening, trucks dropped off prepared meals, supplies and portable cribs for the hotel.
Neither New York City nor Yonkers has said how long the group of asylum seekers is expected to stay.
Yonkers Mayor Mike Spano is expected to provide an update Tuesday morning.
Gov. Kathy Hochul addressed the situation Monday, saying she's working with the northern suburbs to see what help they can provide.
