Not sure about the 2nd, but I think it's in the rough southwest section of town. The first one is pretty rough, probably not the very worst part of Mt. Vernon (that would be a little further down 3rd Street), but up there. The tricky thing about both Mt. Vernon and Yonkers is that you can have a nice, even downright upscale neighborhood literally right smack against "the hood" so to speak, partially reflecting who they border (poor parts of the Bronx right on up to Bronxville and Pelham, some of the richest (and particularly in the case of Bronxville snobbiest) real estate in America.

Radford Street is in Southwest Yonkers and close to South Broadway. It is not that great of a neighborhood. Many parts of Yonkers are actually decent and quite safe though I would stay away from the SW portion, esp near South Broadway.

There are many nice areas in Yonkers, especially in northeast Yonkers - some areas to consider Colonial Heights, Westchester Hills, Sprain Lake Knolls, Crestwood. These areas are all around Central Park Ave, closer to Scarsdale. Another nice area is near St. John's Church in Dunwoodie and around st.Josephs seminary. There are more but those are the ones that pop up off the top of my head.

im born and raised in yonkers. i actually live near radford.. i walk past there regularly with my 2 yr old. Yes, it is surrounded by pretty "not so nice looking" areas. But honestly, its more of a cosmetic "rough" than anything else. You would want to avoid areas like Elliot ave off of radford.
Yonkers is a very mixed city. like someone posted, you can have a really nice area right smack next to the hood. The truth is if you want to live in yonkers, you have to be able to get along with everyone and have thick skin. there are lots of inconsiderate people but you'll find that anywhere in the NY area. If you want to raise a family, you would want to look to the north east part of town, but beware, its not always 100% squeaky clean.

I think you'll be alright on Union and third, but a little further up the street towards 3rd and 7th things can get very rough if your not familiar with the area. Its a good/bad blocks area, as far as i'm concerned.

I agree with what Thug2md said about Radford st. and being "cosmetically rough". the nice part of Park Hill and Rumsey rd are not that far away at all! There's good Bee line bus service over here as well. You can get on a number of convienient bus routes like the 1 and 4 around there. Elliot ave has always been a crazy block, I haven't been over there in a while though. I gotta give you some rep for spot on advice.
