mid 80's yonkers refused to desegregate public housing. like if you look up the pictures from that time of the white folks protesting the federal desegregation order it looks like klan rallies. the city basically almost bankrupted itself by refusing to desegregate and the case wasn't finally settled until 2007. like they were literally closing down libraries to ensure that black people didn't live next to white people. I think that pretty much killed a good section of black people not from yonkers as thinking of yonkers as any sort of alternative for a long period of time...
