We're thinking of renting in Yonkers. We've never been before and were wondering if the wrap Yonkers has is a thing of the past. The home we're thinking of renting is located near Warburton & Odell. It's so close to the train and the home seems lovely, so should we hesitate? Is there something about that area we should know about? Our daughter will be in preschool and our son is too young to go to school, so the shape of the public schools isn't so worrisome at the moment. But if we do stay, what are the private schools like there?
Many thanks,
Lisa

We lived on Warburton Ave. a few years ago. One thing I remember is that the walk down the hill to the Greystone metro north station is a steep one. 1085 Warburton is a condo building with an elevator directly to the station.

I lived in the vicinity for a while. I think street parking is a problem to find. I have seen an occasional bit of car window glass around too.

I don't know of any private schools in the area that aren't run of the mill parochial schools.
