Lost Borough (Yonkers)

The City of New York was consolidated into five boroughs (Bronx, Brooklyn, Manhattan, Queens and Staten Island) on January 1, 1898. Yonkers is located next to the Bronx and some believe that Yonkers seems like a borough of New York City.

The Yonkers nickname of the “lost borough” has been cited in print since at least 2004. Yonkers has also been called the “sixth borough.”


Wikipedia: Yonkers, New York
Yonkers is the fourth most populous city in the U.S. state of New York (behind New York City, Buffalo, and Rochester), and the most populous city in Westchester County, with a population of 195,976 (according to the 2010 Census). Yonkers borders the New York City borough of the Bronx and is located two miles (3 km) north of Manhattan at the cities’ closest points.
