Unpopular opinion - Yonkers is one of the best cities in Westcheter
My personal opinion Yonkers has a good amount of diversity More urban than a lot of the other towns /cities in Westchester People here are more easy to meet. Feel like a lot of other cities have a lot of people who live in a bubble and much less likely to branch out Has 3 places you can shopping - Cross county, Ridge Hill and Central Ave Has Yonkers Raceway and Empire City Casino Has the Hudson River Musuem Biggest city in Westcheter so plenty of food options Great parks- Tibbetts, Untemyer , Van der Donck Dunwoodie Golf Course 30 minutes from NYC on the Metro North I feel the crime is overblown as well. Some places to avoid, but a good amount of places you will be fine at Schools - I'll leave that up to you Also- Population growth notes: According to World Population Review, Yonkers is “one of the fastest growing cities in the State of New York,” and its strong growth is expected to continue into the future.Mar 5, 2020 https://www.moving.com/tips/the-10-largest-cities-in-new-york/#:~:text=Population%20growth%20notes%3A%20According%20to%20World%20Population%20Review%2C%20Yonkers%20is,to%20continue%20into%20the%20future. How bad can it be if it's attracting people to move there
Round 4 of the 2016 Summer Street Circuit Contest is over, and it's time for round 5. Last week, we traveled to the Coloradoan town of Castle Rock, former home of Continental Divide Raceways. 20 designers participated. Let's see how they did. tininsteelian-2 took his first win of the season in Castle Rock. He received 9 votes, but because of the bonus, he takes home 11 points. Second place was a tie on 9 points between RWPROfficial and PM_ME_UR_ALLIGATOR. Third place went to pjlee98 with 6 points. Fourth place went to lui5mb with 5 points. He finished off the podium for the first time this season. Fifth place was a tie on 4 points between 4 designers: Alo_14, MBKF1, viinster88 (who returned for the first time since the 2015 Monza round), and newcomer McPhilen. Sixth place was a tie on 3 points between 3d_orz, -JensonButton-, mdmcadams, and murphyslaaawl. Seventh place was a tie on 2 points between ARandomPerson17, exaenae, and IanE55, who returns for the first time since the 2016 Winter São Paulo round. Eighth place went to newcomer NoonecanknowMiner on 1 point. Ninth place was a "tie" on 0 points between newcomer Hampster3 and, surprisingly, the top two in the 2016 Winter championship: vwlou89 and knoxvox. Here's the breakdown: http://i.imgur.com/M2lQdZC.png Let's see how this has affected the championship:
lui5mb continues to dominantly sit atop the table despite his unsuccessful Castle Rock performance. The gap has closed, though. tininsteelian-2 hops from 4th to 2nd after his great Castle Rock win. He's now only 13 points behind lui5mb. RWPROfficial remains in 3rd after another second place in Castle Rock. He did close his gap to lui5mb by 2 points, though. 3d_orz fell from 2nd to 4th after an unsuccessful Castle Rock round. He's only 1 point behind third, though. PM_ME_UR_ALLIGATOR continues to occupy the 5th spot in the championship. His second place in Castle Rock has closed the gap to some of those ahead of him, though. Last season's champion, vwlou89, dropped out of the top 10 to 13th after a miserable performance where he scored 0 points. Last season's runner-up knoxvox joined him in the 0-point group. Hopefully these two can get back on track and catch back up to the leaders. Last place in the championship now belongs to Castle Rock newcomer Hampster3. If he participates in more rounds, he won't be at the bottom of the championship for long. Last week, we traveled to the Coloradoan town of Castle Rock. This week, we do something a bit different. Before Grand Prix racing officially started, there were still simple racing competitions. Motor racing itself began in France and the first official motoring contest happened in 1894 at the Paris-Rouen rally. For the rest of the 19th century, motor racing seemed to be an exclusively European activity. In 1900, the United States took interest in motor racing. A rich American businessman from New York with Scottish heritage wanted to make motor racing an international event. It was not actually Donald Trump, but Gordon Bennett, the publisher of the New York Herald, who began the Gordon Bennett Cup. It was a French motor race, but all nations of the world were open to entry with their home manufacturers. The USA was never successful in the 6 runnings of the Gordon Bennett Cup between 1900 and 1905, but in 1905, they started their own racing league. The 1905 AAA National Motor Car Championship was the first ever season of the premier American open-wheel series. The series had 10 points-paying races which were primarily held at repurposed horse racing tracks. So this week, in honor of our contest moving internationally next week, I am giving you the opportunity to build your circuits at any of the 9 locations which hosted Champ Car races in 1905. Here's a short rundown all the locations. The Bronx The Bronx is the 4th largest of New York City's 5 boroughs. Its most famous attraction is currently Yankee Stadium, but in 1905 the borough held two Champ Car races, both at a former horse racing facility called Morris Park. The opening race of the season, the Morris Park 5, was won by Swiss-American Louis Chevrolet. The second race at Morris Park in 1905, the Morris Park 1, was won by Iowa native Webb Jay. Morris Park never hosted another Champ Car race after that. In 1910, most of the facilities burned down, and by 1921 there was an iron factory on top of the former site. If you choose the Bronx as your location, then you must keep your circuit in the Bronx. You may not cross over into any other New York City boroughs. Hartford Hartford is the capital and fourth-largest city in Connecticut. In 1905, the city held one Champ Car race at another former horse racing facility called Charter Oak Park. The second race of the 1905 season, the Hartford 5, was won by legendary Ohio native Barney Oldfield. The track would never host another motor race, but it continued to host horse races until 1925. The track was doomed when Connecticut put anti-betting laws into place in 1925, and nowadays the site is occupied by a strip mall and a Walmart. If you choose Hartford as your location, you may use both Hartford and the smaller town of West Hartford, because the race was basically held on what is now the line between the two towns. Yonkers Yonkers is the fourth most populous city in New York. In 1905, the city held one Champ Car race at another former horse racing facility called the Empire City Race Track. The third race of the 1905 season, the Empire City 10, was won by Louis Chevrolet, who took his second win of the season. The track would never host another motor race, but it was reopened for horse racing in 1907. In 1950, the track was renamed Yonkers Raceway. The track is still there today as a part of the Empire City Casino. If you choose Yonkers as your location, obviously you must keep your track in Yonkers. Pittsburgh Pittsburgh is the second largest city in Pennsylvania. In 1905, the city held one Champ Car race at another horse racing facility called Brunots Island Race Track. The fourth race of the 1905 season, the Brunots Island 10, was won by Louis Chevrolet, who took his second win in a row and third win of the season. The track would never host another motor race, but it continued to host horse races until 1914. Brunots Island is now home to a fossil fuel power plant. If you choose Pittsburgh as your location, obviously you must keep your track in Pittsburgh. Cleveland Cleveland is the second largest city in Ohio. In 1905, the city's Glenville neighborhood held one Champ Car race at another horse racing facility called Glenville Race Track. The sixth race of the 1905 season, the Glenville 5, was won by Ohio native Charles Burman, who won his first and last Champ Car race ever. The track would never host another motor race, and the site was abandoned in 1908 after betting was banned. The neighborhood of Glenville is now just a residential area. If you choose Cleveland as your location, obviously you must keep your track in Cleveland. Buffalo Buffalo is the second largest city in New York. In 1905, the city held one Champ Car race at another horse racing facility called Kenilworth Park Race Track. The seventh race of the 1905 season, the Buffalo 5, was won by Barney Oldfield, who took his second win of the season. Webb Jay was critically injured at this event and wouldn't return to racing again. The track would never host another motor race, and the track closed in 1908 after race track betting was banned in New York. The former site is now home to residential area. If you choose Buffalo as your location, you must keep your track in Buffalo. Boston Boston is the largest city in Massachusetts. In 1905, the city's Readville neighborhood held one Champ Car race at another former horse racing facility called Readville Race Track. The eighth race of the 1905 season, the Readville 5, was won by Barney Oldfield, who took his second win in a row and third win of the season. The track would never host another Champ Car race, but horse races and motor races were held at the track until 1937. During World War II, US Navy pilots practiced touch-and-go landings at the oval, but since then it was completely inactive. The former site is now home to a warehouse and a bike racing school. If you choose Boston as your location, you must keep your track in Boston. The former track was actually in the Readville neighborhood of Boston, but you can use all of the Boston area. You MAY NOT just copy the proposed Boston street circuit that was supposed to host IndyCar in 2016. You must make your own unique track. Cranston Cranston is the third largest city in Rhode Island. In 1905, the city held one Champ Car race at another former horse racing facility called Narragansett Park Speedway. In 1867, the park opened as Narragansett Trotting Park and its opening day was attended by both J.P. Morgan and Cornelius Vanderbilt. In 1873, the park closed, but it was bought again in 1886 for the Rhode Island State Fair. In 1896, the first ever American automobile race was held at the park. An electric Riker car won. The ninth race of the 1905 season, the Providence 5, was won by Barney Oldfield, who took his third win in a row and fourth win of the season. If you choose Cranston as your location, you must keep your track in Cranston. You may slightly cross over into the larger city of Providence, but your track must be mostly in Cranston. Poughkeepsie Poughkeepsie is a small city in New York and was New York's second capital shortly after the American Revolution. In 1905, the city held one Champ Car race at another former horse racing facility called Hudson River Driving Park. The final race of the 1905 season, the Poughkeepsie 5, was won by Barney Oldfield, who took his fourth win in a row and fifth win of the season. He officially won the 1905 AAA Champ Car championship after this race. If you choose Poughkeepsie as your location, you must keep your track in Poughkeepsie. That was an awful lot of history. That is correct, you will have NINE options to choose from to design your tracks. You can choose any location on the list. You can only submit one track as always, so don't think you have to design a track for each location. In case you haven't seen the last two seasons, here are the rules with some new additions.
Stay within the town or city limits of the town or city assigned.
Don't worry about realism. If you want to put a pitlane in the middle of a major motorway, do it.
The circuits have to be mostly on streets. Purpose built sections may be built in parks/farms/etc but the track must be mostly a street circuit. Tracks cannot be built over previously built buildings.
You must include at least a screenshot of your track. Links to RouteBuilder or GmapPedometer will not be counted.
Track designs must be submitted by Wednesday. The voting thread will go up then. Please include a direct Imgur or Dropbox link in your submission. RouteBuilder submissions will not be counted. You're designing a street circuit in either The Bronx, New York; Hartford, Connecticut; Yonkers, New York; Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania; Cleveland, Ohio; Buffalo, New York; Boston, Massachusetts; Cranston, Rhode Island; or Poughkeepsie, New York. Follow the rules. You have until Wednesday. Happy designing.
