Yonkers Survival Map

Due to a fantastic new job opportunity for Brittany, she and I will be relocating 2,000 miles away this January to Yonkers, New York. With a population of about 200,000 and located immediately north of the Bronx, Yonkers is the ideal suburb for us. It's big, but not too big, and it's a half-hour's train ride away from my favorite city on the planet. Yonkers Wikipedia entry:

The following map represents all my hours of Yonkers relocation and acclimation research up to this point. Use the controls at left to pan in any direction or zoom in and out to get a better feel of what's on my map. Click any landmark icon to learn about the location, see photographs, and visit relevant websites. Click "Map", "Satellite", or "Hybrid" to choose your view. Click "Map Overview" to get an idea as to where in the United States Yonkers is located, or click "Legend" to select which types of landmarks you wish to see displayed. There's plenty to discover by clicking, so have some fun with it.

Note: clicking around on the map might take you to the map website itself, located at

Yonkers Survival Map is intended to contain everything I need "for arriving at, settling into, and thriving in Yonkers, New York," including: airports, transportation stops, possible homes, places of work, grocery stores, government buildings, hospitals, entertainment and culture, bicycle shops, libraries...the list is always growing. If there is anything here you think I should add, leave a comment.
