A waterfront sign at an historic pier in the lower Hudson Valley has gotten a facelift.

Yonkers Mayor Mike Spano says the city recently installed new LED lights to the Yonkers City Pier sign along the Hudson River. The LED lights illuminate the Yonkers sign for the first time in more than 15 years. The Yonkers Pier, including its steel sign, was installed on the Yonkers waterfront in 1901. At that time, Mayor Leslie Sutherland realized the need for the public to have places to go to experience fresh air. The historic pier is the last remaining Victorian-era steel pier on the entire Hudson River. The Yonkers Pier sign is illuminated from dusk until dawn.
