Saturday, October 7, 4:35 pm, Midland Avenue: A large tree down on Midland Avenue between Masterton Road and Hemlock Road caused a road closure for a brief time, as the tree was too big for the department of public works to remove. A tree removal company responded and corrected the condition.

A preliminary investigation determined that the subject was not intent on engaging in criminal activity.

Thursday, October 12, 1:51 am, Normandy Terrace: Police Officer Michael Lewis reported that he observed two males enter the village on Gramatan Avenue. While performing a canvass of the area for criminal activity, Officer Lewis observed the two males inside an unlocked Cadillac parked in the driveway of a Normandy Terrace residence.

The owner was notified and the 17-year-old was also charged with Criminal Possession of Stolen Property in the 5th Degree. The 18-year-old Bronx male was found to be in possession of a spring-loaded switchblade and a plastic bag containing marijuana. He was subsequently charged with Criminal Possession of a Weapon in the 4th Degree and Unlawful Possession of Marijuana.

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.
