From the NYT -

"For decades, Westchester County’s cities seemed stuck in a peculiar limbo, too sleepy to be New York, too gritty to be suburban.

But as a housing crunch continues to grip neighborhoods in Manhattan and Brooklyn, some midsize cities just north of New York are pushing to take advantage.

In a flurry of activity, developers are adding apartments, stores, restaurants, theaters and even a brewery to Mount Vernon, New Rochelle and Yonkers, where local leaders are embracing aggressive growth policies."

They missed about 500 units on upper Warburton Avenue in Yonkers. Not to mention thousands of new units planned or under construction in White Plains, and other scattered developments (Tuckahoe, Dobbs Ferry, Central Avenue in Greenburgh, etc.)

Have no idea how they are going to fill all these apartments.
