Ludlow, or Ludlow Park, is a residential neighborhood in the Southwest section of the city of Yonkers, which sits in Westchester County, New York. Yonkers serves as the perfect balance between city and suburban life; on one hand peace and quiet abounds, but it also has an artsy and creative vibe here that usually resides in the city. Ludlow sits close to the train, and a trip to Grand Central only takes about 27 minutes.

Though Yonkers contains many small residential enclaves and communities, many of these names are rarely used today except by older residents and real-estate brokers. The area also houses significant historical and educational institutions, including the historic Philipse Manor Hall, the Science Barge, Beczak Environmental Education Center, and the Yonkers Public Library.

History

Yonkers's growth once rested on developing industry. Elisha Otis invented the first safety elevator and the Otis Elevator Company in 1853; it was the first elevator factory in the world. In 1906, Bakelite, the first completely synthetic plastic, was invented and manufactured here until the late 1920s.

The art scene here lies middle of the road; the community doesn't have the bohemian vibe that other nearby towns have, but many artists move to this area due to the proximity to New York City. Throughout Yonkers, quite a few art galleries and studios can be found. The Hudson River Museum houses a planetarium, a wide variety of exhibitions, and educational programs for children and adults.

In September, be sure to catch the annual Riverfest. It features free entertainment for the whole family, such as live music, international foods, arts show, arts and crafts vendors, carnival games and classic cars.
