I have lived in New York for 37 years and in my community of Yonkers for 23 years. The changes I have seen within my community of Yonkers is the education level has decreased and kids are not learning the amount they are supposed too. Upcoming generations are not excelling and the youth are not able to move upward. Overall, everything about this town has gone backwards.
