Have You Noticed the Construction Around the Bronxville School? PDF Print Email


By Staff

Feb. 12, 2020: Have you noticed the construction around the Bronxville School? This is all part of the School's $28.3 million capital improvement project that is being primarily financed by two bond issues.

We reached out to Dan Carlin, Assistant Superintendent for Business at the Bronxville School, to update us on the construction that you see in the photos below.

Here is what we learned.

Two Towers over the Main Entrance at the Flag Pole

The photo at the top of this article shows the scaffolding over the two towers at the main entrance to the School at the Flag Pole. Carlin explained that work is being done to restore the parapet brick and mortar as well as the roof in that area.

The photos above show a great deal of construction at the Meadow Avenue entrance to the School.

Carlin explained that the School is building an extension to the existing lobby as well as a new security area with a "man trap" and lounge area.

According to Carlin, a "man-trap" is an area "where people entering the building can be isolated and vetted before being granted entrance to the building. They would be buzzed in by security, be identified and signed in, and then granted or denied entrance to the building."  

The School is also adding an addition over the gym that will become flexible modern classroom space.

Fencing on the corners of Pondfield and Meadow and Pondfield and Midland

The photos above show large fenced-in areas with construction vehicles, contractor storage, and parking on the corners of Pondfield and Meadow and Pondfield and Midland. 

Carlin explained that these are staging areas for the work going on on those sides of the building. These areas will be returned to grass upon completion of the construction projects. 

Other Near Term Projects

The School has recently put out bids for the new Innovation Center and for replacing the curtain wall in the Elementary School.

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.
