Yonkers is the fourth most populous city in the U.S. state of New York, and the most populous city in Westchester County, with a population of 195,976. Yonkers borders the New York City borough of the Bronx and is located two miles north of Manhattan at the cities' closest points. The city is home to several attractions: the Hudson River Museum, the Sherwood House, the Science Barge, Cross County Shopping Center, Ridge Hill Shopping Center, and Yonkers Raceway, a harness racing track that has renovated its grounds and clubhouse and added legalized video slot machine gambling in 2006 in a "racino" called Empire City. There are also many large shopping areas along Central Park Avenue, informally called "Central Ave" by area residents, a name it takes officially a few miles north in White Plains.
