Welcome to the Park Hill Residents' Association
A BRIEF HISTORY OF PARK HILL
In 1888, the American Real Estate Company established the Park Hill section of Yonkers. They created a community amid one of the most naturally beautiful areas in Westchester County. The neighborhood quickly attracted people who worked in Manhattan, but who wanted to live in a more tranquil setting.
Among Park Hill's early residents were celebrities from the stage, screen and radio. The English actor Richard Bennett and his daughters Joan and Constance lived here. Dennis O'Brien, the corporate counsel for United Artists, hosted parties at his Park Hill home where guests included Charlie Chaplin, George M. Cohan, Mary Pickford and Douglas Fairbanks. Alfred and Dora McCann broadcast their WOR radio program from their Park Hill house, and drummer Gene Krupa made his home here.
A variety of artists still live here in a distinctive community where they are neighbors with plumbers, doctors, secretaries, clerks, teachers and others.
PHRA Annual Tag Sale Postponed to Fall 2020
We have been receiving requests to organize our Annual Tag Sale. The dates of August 7 and 8 were to be announced in the upcoming issue of the Park Hill Reporter. However, due to significant mailing house delays, the Reporter has not yet been delivered and we feel that residents will not have enough time to prepare. As a result, the Tag Sale has been postponed until late September or early October. Please disregard the announcement when your issue of the Reporter arrives. We will send another email to let you know the new date once it has been selected.
Stay cool and safe and enjoy the rest of the summer!
