By Staff

Jan. 9, 2019: On December 29, 2018, at 3:27 pm, the Bronxville Police Department received calls about smoke coming from a building on Cedar Street in the area of Pondfield Road in Bronxville. Bronxville Police Officers Cavallo and Kaiser went to the scene and reported that smoke appeared to be coming from Hunan Chinese Restaurant at 6 Cedar Street.

60 Control, which is the county dispatch center for the fire department, was notified and dispatched the Eastchester Fire Department to the location. Officer Cavallo closed Cedar Street to vehicular and pedestrian traffic and cleared the surrounding buildings.

The Eastchester Fire Department arrived within three minutes of the alarm. According to the fire department report, fourteen personnel responded. On arrival, the firefighters found fire in a large cooking oven with extension into the ductwork up to the roof. The "heat source" for the fire was described as "heat from powered equipment." The fire was confined to the room and the Eastchester Fire Department was able to extinguish the fire. Fire Chief Tween contacted the Westchester County Department of Health and the owner was advised not to open business until the health department inspected the premises.

Bronxville Sergeant DeYoung reported that all is now "in order" at the location and the restaurant has reopened for business.

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.
