Hi Ken, I totally understand your frustration! Real estate agents will not be able to comment on crime stats and area safety (we have strict lisence laws) , but we can talk about what the future holds for an area and steer you to the proper resources. Our jobs are to guide the customer/client and help educate, not just send you for a drive thru, although that is a good way to check out an area and see if you feel comfortable.You can visit http://www.homefair.com
and my site http://www.ChristopherPagli.com
to get crime stats and demographics for an area, also the downtown Yonkers area is under major revitilization. I can sit here and talk about it all day but I think you should google "the downtown yonkers waterfront project" and you will get all of the information you need. At the moment upper Warburton ave has some new condo buildings going up and I've seen some of them that are on hte water, the view is incredible. Let me know if I can be of further assistance.
