Yonkers is a city in Westchester County, New York. Located next to the Hudson River, it’s the third most populous city in the state, behind NYC and Buffalo. In the 1640s, Adriaen Van der Donck obtained land from the Dutch East India Company, which he called Colon Donck, and built one of the first sawmills in the New World. Because of his status in Holland, Van der Donck was referred to as Jonk Herr ("young Gentleman" or "young Nobleman"), and little by little, these words evolved to The Younckers, The Yonkers, and finally to the present Yonkers. This 2023, Flip Circus will stop in this beautiful city to present our world-class show.
