Are there any parts of Yonkers that would be relatively safe to raise a young family?The opinions expressed here are those of the individual and not those of StreetAdvisor. Report
Crestwood. Honestly, to get public transportation, great schools, beautiful homes, and a safe area for shopping dining and living, choose Bay Ridge in Brooklyn. Beautiful.

I would say NO - do not attempt to raise a family in Yonkers - start a business, maybe but there are better areas around for that as well

Yonkers is actually one of the safest Cities in the nation with many different neighborhood to choose from that would provide a safe place to raise a family. Major crimes are down 13% as compared to the prior year and at a seven year low.
I agree, there are plenty,, you can include Northeast Yonkers, 10708,10707,10583, and areas within 10710. Northeast Yonkers brings you The newly developed Westchester,s Ridge Hill and ideal environment for shopping,dining and entertaining and not to mention The Luxurious Monarch Condos nestled hilltop overlooking Sprain Lake Reservior and Sprain Lake Golf Course close by and Major highways.
I love the homes in Crestwood, and it's close to Metro-North, which is great for family day trips to the city.
There are plenty of places in Yonkers that are safe to raise a family. Southeast Yonkers, which is where I currently live, is a nice neighborhood, with several good schools in the area: St. Barnabas, St. Paul's, and P.S. 19. (St. Barnabas and P.S. 19 are technically in the Bronx, but are a very short drive away). Lincoln Park is a slightly pricier neighborhood--very quiet and residential. Lots of families live on Midland Ave, which is very close to Tibbetts Park. (Although cars can speed very fast down Midland, so it may be dangerous for kids.) Crestwood is a quiet, suburban neighborhood, with a nice public park. Lawrence Park and Cedar Knolls are also nice neighborhoods, and they are both quite close to Bronxville.
