Here in Yonkers, there was little doubt about which community was the hippest town in the Lower Hudson Valley.
Then The Journal News and lohud.com made it official. The City of Gracious Living, home of Getty Square, Untermyer Park & Gardens, and those breathtaking views of the Palisades was chosen above all the others in an online competition that stretched over several weeks.
Now it’s time to party.
Come out and join others who love Yonkers and lohud reporter Christine Gritmon at the Yonkers Brewing Company, 92 Main Street, for live music from Frisky Chestnut, three rounds of Yonkers trivia and a cake from Anna Artuso’s Pastry Shop, a McLean Avenue institution.
It starts at 6 p.m.
Collect Generation Yonkers swag and enter raffles for giveaways throughout the night.
At 7 p.m., Gritmon will present Mayor Michael Spano with a certificate declaring Yonkers the Hippest Town in all the region.
Generation Yonkers representatives will be there to help celebrate the city and its current social renaissance.
So come find out what many already knew. This is, in Gritmon’s words, a “newly revitalized powerhouse city, which in recent years has invested heavily in the arts, riverfront development and a stronger, safer, hipper downtown business district.”
Yeah. We knew that.
