D&Dís Elevator Learning Center, like Yonkers itself, is one of a kind.

Published Wednesday, February 13, 2019

Expect the unexpected from Yonkers. New York’s fourth-largest city with a history dating to the 1600s, Yonkers enjoyed a robust role in industry in the 1800s and 1900s. It was here the world’s first completely synthetic plastic, Bakelite, was invented, where much of the work that led to the invention of FM radio was performed and where, in 1853, Elisha Graves Otis invented the first elevator safety brake and opened Otis Elevator Co. — the first elevator factory in the world — on the banks of the Hudson River. Brick smokestacks with the faded Otis logo still loom over Yonkers, but the facility is hardly a ruin. It is now used by Kawasaki for subway-car manufacturing.
