New! “MyYonkers Conversations”

IMG_0188 copy

Hey guys, this post is an inquiry that I am throwing out to the community of Yonkers and beyond.  IMG_1646

In 2014 or sooner, I will begin a series of Posts titled “MyYonkers Conversations”, where I will be spotlighting members of the Yonkers community either through video or transcription and showcasing some of the more amazing and inspiring life stories that exist in our great city.

I have a few conversations lined up later this fall and will be running them by the end of the year but was curious if you knew someone in Yonkers who you would like to see spotlighted on here?  Some examples may include but are not limited to:

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAThere are obviously many many more examples I could give but I think you get the jist.

My goal is to utilize the following that we have garnered on MyYonkers.org to give light and deserving recognition to those individuals that help do their part to make Yonkers a place that not only is still a vibrant city but also those who forever live in our minds as staples and familiar faces of our childhood growing up in the city.

One can only imagine the litany of individuals who could have been spotlighted on here but sadly have passed away so this may be an excellent way to recognize some amazing Yonkers residents in the living years.

If you have someone in mind, please feel free to email me at MyYonkers@gmail.com and let me know the details.  Thanks guys!

  1. Hi Josh, I co-own a flower shop on North Broadway in Yonkers. There’s a shoe repair shop called Harry’s on North Broadway closer to Getty Square. I believe the owner just celebrated 50 years in business here in Yonkers. His shop though tiny is like a little museum inside. You should definitely get in touch with him.
