Midland Avenue Drainage Project Nears Completion PDF Print Email



By Carol P. Bartold, Senior Reporter

Jul. 12, 2017:  Village Administrator Jim Palmer reported that work needed to complete the FEMA project, also known as the flood mitigation project, includes the installation of a fence around the perimeter of the pumps on The Bronxville School campus. In addition, Palmer said, shrubs and arborvitae trees will be planted on Midland Avenue in the vicinity of the project’s construction site.

Palmer stated that the flood mitigation system will be tested later this month when water is put through the force main, pump station, and system that is designed to carry excess flood water to Laurel Brook near Palumbo Place. Palmer stated that personnel from the DPW as well as the Eastchester Fire Department are planned to be on hand for the testing.

In conjunction with the completion of the flood mitigation project, Midland Avenue will be repaved from the intersection of Pondfield Road to Masterton Road. All four crosswalks at Pondfield Road and Midland Avenue will be repaved with red brick. Other street paving in the area will occur on Crow’s Nest Road and Village Lane.



Consolidated Edison will restore the permanent sidewalk on the southeasterly side of Midland Avenue. When a depression in the street’s pavement over the winter revealed that several gas lines needed to be replaced, the village authorized the utility to complete that work. Upon finishing the installation of new gas lines, Consolidated Edison installed temporary sidewalks. The new permanent sidewalk will extend from Pondfield Road to just past Library Lane.

In cooperation with the school, the village will also repave the elementary school parking lot, which was used as a construction staging area for much of the flood mitigation project.

Bronxville Overview

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.
