Burbio is a perfect complement to the diversified platforms we use to inform our city, making it easier and more fun to live, work and play.”

“This initiative is an outgrowth of the BCW urban centers strategy which focuses on live-work-play,” said Marsha Gordon, President/CEO, the Business Council of Westchester. “With thousands of multi residential units coming on the market in Yonkers we wanted to ensure that all residents are aware of the multitude of ways that they can “play” in this great city. We are so pleased to bring Burbio’s high technology platform to provide the most up to date information and to partner with them and Yonkers.”
