Park Hill, Yonkers
The neighborhood was developed in 1888 by the American Real Estate Company of Manhattan. The neighborhood's centerpiece for a short time was the Hendric Hudson Hotel, designed by Bruce Price, the architect of the Château Frontenac in Quebec City.
Park Hill contains many vintage single-family homes, many overlooking the Hudson River. The neighborhood originally featured Victorians, Gothic revivals, and Georgian colonials. Since World War II, Cape Cods and ranches were added.
Park Hill was once the home of a funicular railroad named the "Park Hill Incline" which ran from the Getty Square Branch of the New York and Putnam Railroad to Alta Avenue between 1894 and 1937. The two stations that served the railroad are now private residences.
