Biggest Shame in Yonkers

I alluded to this in a previous post, but the condition of staircase at Untermyer is an absolute shame. Governor Pataki was able to produce $100,000 to restore Untermyer Park. The garden was restored and it looks very nice. The rock area wasn't restored, but it did not really need restoration (the metal is rusted though). The staircase it self needs a lot of work. Nature has taken its toll and it is completely overgrown and its now a host to runoff stream. There is another garden right next to it at the bottom, but the pillars are practically hidden by overgrown weeds. The two pillars at the bottom of the staircase are covered with graffiti. There is also an abandoned house below the end of the staircase. We once went to it in the winter, but its very hard to get there from the staircase. Let us know what you think in the comments...
