Letter to the Community in Support of Mary Taylor Behrens

March 9, 2022: We write to support Mary Taylor Behrens for re-election as Bronxville Village Trustee.  Since Mary joined the Board of Trustees in 2020, the Village has benefited from her knowledge of the Village as a resident for over 50 years as well as from her extensive business and volunteer experience. She has worked with the other Trustees to improve communication with residents through the “One Square Mile” newsletter, helped implement a food scrap recycling program, supported the restricted use of gas-powered leaf blowers, and worked with county, state and federal officials to improve the Village in myriad ways, including the Safe Routes to School initiative and efforts at flood mitigation. 

Mary is a hard-working and dedicated public servant (even handing out covid tests on Christmas Eve).  We are lucky to have people like her willing to devote their time, energy and talents to our beautiful village.  We thank her for her efforts and enthusiastically support her re-election.

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.
