From the Mayor: Thank You Village Residents & Two Great Quotes

By Mary Marvin, Mayor of Bronxville

Dec. 22, 2021: At this time of taking stock and reviewing the year with gratitude and appreciation, there is no better moment to thank the dozens of Village residents who stepped up in 2021 to volunteer on behalf of their government.

Without those dedicated citizens mentioned, the Trustees and I could not run the government with efficiency – plans reviewed and approved, new initiatives put forward and projects imagined. Their efforts resulted in literally thousands of donated hours of time, expertise and professionalism.

This list is not only a thank you on behalf of the entire Village Hall team but also names of your neighbors on committees that may help you with various questions or needed advice on their areas of expertise.

“The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.” Ghandi

If we inadvertently forgot anyone, I apologize in advance and will mention as a deserved addendum next week.

“We make a living by what we get. We make a life by what we give.” Winston Churchill

Bronxville Overview

Bronxville is a quaint village (one square mile) located just 16 miles north of midtown Manhattan (roughly 30 minutes on the train) and has a population of approximately 6,500. It is known as a premier community with an excellent public school (K-12) and easy access to Manhattan. Bronxville offers many amenities including an attractive business district, a hospital (Lawrence Hospital), public paddle and tennis courts, fine dining at local restaurants, two private country clubs and a community library.

While the earliest settlers of Bronxville date back to the first half of the 18th century, the history of the modern suburb of Bronxville began in 1890 when William Van Duzer Lawrence purchased a farm and commissioned the architect, William A. Bates, to design a planned community of houses for well-known artists and professionals that became a thriving art colony. This community, now called Lawrence Park, is listed on the National register of Historic Places and many of the homes still have artists’ studios. A neighborhood association within Lawrence Park called “The Hilltop Association” keeps this heritage alive with art shows and other events for neighbors.

Bronxville offers many charming neighborhoods as well as a variety of living options for residents including single family homes, town houses, cooperatives and condominiums. One of the chief benefits of living in “the village” is that your children can attend the Bronxville School.

The Bronxville postal zone (10708, known as “Bronxville PO”) includes the village of Bronxville as well as the Chester Heights section of Eastchester, parts of Tuckahoe and the Lawrence Park West, Cedar Knolls, Armour Villa and Longvale sections of Yonkers. Many of these areas have their own distinct character. For instance, the Armour Villa section has many historic homes and even has its own newsletter called “The Villa Voice” which reports on neighborhood news.
