Around The Village & County: Food Donation, Sales Tax Cap on Gas & Footbridge

Bronxville officials with Congressman Bowman

By Staff,

May 4, 2022:  During April, officials in the village of Bronxville government partnered with our Congressman Jamaal Bowman to collect food to donate to feed Westchester.  Some people are surprised to learn that, while Westchester is the third richest county in the nation, one and six residents in Westchester is food insufficient.

Cap on Sales Tax on Gas

In a special meeting on Thursday April 28, the Westchester Board of Legislators approved a measure to cap sales tax on gas purchases at $.12 per gallon. The tax relief will run from June 1 through August 31.

James Nolan, Westchester County Legislator for the 15th District, which includes Bronxville, commented, "I am thrilled that my colleagues and I passed an act that will cap the County's sales tax at 12 cents per gallon at the gas pump until August 31st! I have been advocating hard for relief since the beginning of March and I was the first Legislator to call for relief at the gas pump. I'm happy that we were successful in delivering relief for both residents and consumers! One of my number one goals as an elected official is to make our community more affordable for everyone!"

Footbridge Replacement

The Bronxville pedestrian footbridge on the Bronx River Pathway located off Pondfield Road will be fully replaced.  The footbridge was destroyed during the remnants of Hurricane Ida which passed through Westchester County late last year.

Mary Marvin commented, “I am beyond grateful the persistent bipartisan advocacy for this bridge by our County Legislator James Nolan and the County Executive George Latimer who both immediately saw the need.  The bridge is used by residents of Yonkers, Bronxville, Tuckahoe and Mount Vernon for daily walks so the repair will benefit so many lower Westchester citizens.”

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.
