What counts as "downtown" is obviously a subjective question, but in White Plains, shopping, dining, and high-rise buildings (commercial and residential) are all centered around Mamaroneck Avenue (north-south) and Main Street (east-west) and their adjacent blocks.

Downtown New Rochelle is the area where Route 1 splits into two separate streets (Main and Huguenot) for several blocks.

I don't know Yonkers well enough to give exact streets, but it's the area by the Metro-North station.

the poster above is correct. the metro north area and the Getty Square area east of it are the original downtown Yonkers.
Getty Square area continues towards the west by , past the new park like area that used to be the parking lot called larking plaza, that area is all opened up , meaning the saw mill river ,which had been covered up, is exposed , called daylighting. They did a real nice job, it came out much better than i expected. If i find a picture i took this summer i will post it here.
Downtown yonkers went out of business as a real shopping area at least 40 years ago.
The automobile became more affordable and these new shopping malls were built, even the cross county shopping mall , also in yonkers , put downtown yonkers out of business. A lot of it also had to do with white flight and such. The stores moved out to trendier locations, and the people followed. I worked down there as a teenager in the late 60's, so i was always kind of used to the area.
