Nov. 15, 2017:  The entries below are selections from the Bronxville Police blotter.

Sunday, November 5, 5:05 am, Locust Lane:  The police desk sergeant detailed officers to Locust Lane after observing a suspicious male on village surveillance cameras walking in the road with a woman’s purse. The subject fled through a yard at the sight of arriving officers. Tuckahoe police officers assisted in attempting to locate the subject. The purse containing what appears to be stolen items was recovered. Numerous vehicles were reportedly rummaged through in the Mount Vernon jurisdiction during the evening. Police are still attempting to identify the suspect.

Sunday, November 5, 11:18 am, Pondfield Road:  A 25-year-old woman from Yonkers was charged with operating a motor vehicle with a suspended registration (unclassified misdemeanor) after an onboard license plate reader indicated to the officer that the registration to the 2014 Hyundai she was operating was suspended for insurance not in effect. Said vehicle was impounded and the woman was processed on scene and then released pending her next appearance date.

Sunday, November 5, 10:05 pm, Kraft Avenue:  A woman reported that an unknown male was knocking on her car window and appeared to be incoherent.

Monday, November 6, 4:30 pm, Pondfield Road:  A woman from Mount Vernon was charged with petit larceny after stealing items from J.McLaughlin reportedly valued at $948. The manager of the store witnessed the theft and a second witness was able to provide police with the license plate number of the getaway vehicle. Detective Valentin and Lieutenant Bunyan were able to locate said vehicle in the City of Yonkers with the woman still inside. The proceeds from the crime were also recovered inside the vehicle. The woman was arraigned by Judge George McKinnis and released on her own recognizance pending her next court appearance.

Thursday, November 9, 9:24 am, Avon Road:  A Bronxville DPW employee observed a concrete truck spilling concrete for several blocks and alerted police officers.

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.
