A tidal marsh and beach with gorgeous views — right in the heart of a city.
YONKERS, Westchester County (2 acres) — It’s rare indeed to find a spot like this so close to any downtown — that’s why we worked with the City of Yonkers and Westchester County to protect it, allowing for the creation of an inviting riverfront park. Sunbathers can stretch out on its lawn and enjoy views of the iconic Palisades. The restored tidal marsh and beach provide an ideal “outdoor classroom” for local youth to explore the river courtesy of the Sarah Lawrence College Center for the Urban River at Beczak.
