History of Industry

<p>Yonkers was home to a number of key industries, including Otis Elevator Company for over 100 years; Alexander Smith and Sons Carpet Company, one of the premier carpet producing centers in the world, employing over 4,000 workers housed in 45 factories, and the Bakelite factory, where the first completely synthetic plastic was invented in 1906. Yonkers helped meet the need for supplies during WWII by turning the Smith factory into a blanket and tent manufacturer and had Otis Elevator converted to making tanks. The borough even took its independent tendencies and transmitted the first FM radio broadcast (on station W2XCR) and has also had the longest running pirate radio station.</p>

Yonkers Raceway

<p>Yonkers Raceway, founded in 1899 as the Empire City Race Track, is a one-half-mile, standard bred harness racing dirt track and New York state-approved slots racino located at the intersection of Central Park Avenue and Yonkers Avenue (Exit 2 off the New York State Thruway) in Yonkers, New York. It is currently owned by the five sons of the Pittsburgh Steelers football legend Art Rooney. Seabiscuit is just one of the famous thoroughbreds who have raced there. Among the notables races are the: Yonkers Trotters, Hudson Filly Trotters, Messengers Stakes, and New York Night of Champions. In 2006 Yonkers Raceway invested $225 million in renovations, installing more than 7,500 high-tech slot and video gaming machines.</p>
