Bronxville Police Blotter: March 18 to March 25, 2021

By Bronxville Police Department

April 1, 2021: The following entries are from the Bronxville police blotter:

March 16, 2021, 11:45 PM, Dusenberry Rd: Officers were called to a residence after a report of a loud party. The officers determined that the party holders were the newly elected Village board members and their campaign staff who were celebrating their hard fought and very closely contested victories earlier that evening. The electees agreed to restrain their exuberance.
March 18, 2021, 1:01 PM, Pondfield Road: An officer was called to mediate an argument that had broken out between two Bronxville residents over a parking space. One resident claimed the other stole the space which she had been waiting for. The officer had the two people do rock, paper, scissors to resolve the dispute. Rock beat scissors.
March 19, 2021, 2:37, Pondfield Road: A Bronxville man was given a ticket for excessive honking while stopped at a light. When questioned as to why he would engage in such conduct, the man said the car in front of him had a bumper sticker saying “ Honk If You Love the Jets”. The officer responded that he found that explanation very hard to believe considering their past record.
March 20, 2021, 10:16, Pondfield Road: An officer was called to the CVS after a report of a man leaving without paying. The office was able to track the man down and learned that he had attempted to pay multiple times at the self-checkout, but it kept malfunctioning. The officer agreed that most self-checkouts are incredibly annoying to use and sent the man on his way with a warning.
March 21, 2021, 7:24 PM, Valley Road: An officer was called to a residence after a report that someone was using a leaf blower outside in violation of village code which prohibits the use of loud mechanical devices after 4:00 PM. The female resident explained that she was very late for a dinner party and needed to dry her hair quickly. The officer issued a ticket for disturbing the peace and advised her to bring the leaf blower inside.
March 22, 2021, 3:37 PM, Kraft Ave.: A resident of Yonkers was pulled over on White Plains Rd when the license plate reader revealed that that man was operating an unregistered, uninsured car with an expired license and 752 unpaid parking tickets. Upon further investigation the officer discovered that there was an outstanding bench warrant for the individual who was then taken into custody and placed in the Bronxville Village jail awaiting trial. Visitation hours are 10 AM-2 PM Monday through Friday.  
March 23, 2021, 11:18 PM, Sagamore Road: An officer responded to a report of a burglary in the apartment of a single male resident. According to the man the burglary must have taken place while he was at work. No sign of forced entry. It appeared that the only property taken was several closets of female lingerie. The man declined to submit a formal police report.
March 24, 2021, 10:42 PM, Summit Ave.: An officer responded to a call about a group of teenagers hallooing and yelling. Upon arriving on the scene the officer issued citations to six individuals. A parent of one of the teens who lived nearby came over to ask why the kids had been given citations. The officer explained that recently while researching the early history of Bronxville, Mayor Marvin had discovered an ordinance prohibiting hallooing and yelling after dark. Mayor Marvin directed the village police to start enforcing this ordinance to preserve the peaceful character of Bronxville and to discourage ruffians and hooligans from taking up residence.
March 25, 2021, 7:11 AM, Woodland Ave. A resident reported that a man was loitering in front of her house for no apparent reason. An officer arrived and questioned the man who said he was walking into town. The same man was later seen dawdling on Hawthorne, lollygagging on Tanglewylde, and dillydallying on Park. 
And.....HAPPY APRIL FOOLS DAY (a day early)!

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.
