Trial Period for New Traffic Plan on Kensington Road Begins PDF Print Email


By Jim Palmer, Administrator, Village of Bronxville, and Christopher Satriale, Chief, Bronxville Police 

Nov. 15, 2017:  In consideration of the opening of the Kensington Garage and Villa BXV, the village retained a traffic engineer to study traffic flow--including pedestrian movements--in proximity to the garage and building. 

After a comprehensive review by our engineer, he has presented a traffic plan that significantly reduces the number of vehicle and pedestrian conflicts and provides for traffic--calming islands to reduce the speed of vehicles traveling through the area.  

We have begun a trial period of the plan. We have temporarily marked out the proposed plan with pavement markings, proper signage, and reflective traffic candlesticks. The plan will require some adjustments on the part of motorists and pedestrians who frequent the location. Please be patient during this transitional period. 

We expect to monitor the plan over the next few months and complete permanent improvements in the spring (along with other improvements there, including the repaving of Kensington Road, new curbing, and larger sidewalks alongside the rear of Christ Church). 

Feel free to share your thoughts and observations with us at CLOAKING . A copy of the plan is available on the village’s website; just click on the Kensington Garage link on the village's homepage.

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.
