Snow Day in Bronxville: See Photos PDF Print Email

By Staff     

Feb. 13, 2019:  Starting in the morning of February 11, school children throughout Bronxville were looking online at the Snow Day Calculator and praying for a snow day.  

In the morning, the chance of a snow day was in the 60% range. By 10:00 pm, it had increased to 84% and then at 10:06 pm it came--the email from the Bronxville School that every school-age child was waiting for. It said the following:

Due to the anticipated poor weather and travel conditions, the Bronxville School will be closed on Tuesday, February 12th. All after-school activities and events are cancelled. Please stay safe.

This led to excited screaming by children in many homes throughout the village.

Below are pictures of Bronxville on the snow day of February 12, 2019.

Below (and at top) are photos from MyhometownBronxville photographer Neely Bower.

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.
