By Mary Marvin, Mayor, Village of Bronxville

Mar. 25, 2020:  To all my neighbors,

Hemingway said, “Courage is grace under pressure,” and I can attest that our Village is filled with courageous citizens.

It starts right at our Police Department, where our officers volunteered to pick up and deliver groceries and medicine to our seniors and the infirmed.

Our Police Department was the thoughtful recipients of meals sent by the Junior League just yesterday.

Walk down the street, and our shop owners and restaurants, who are taking an economic gut punch, are handling it with kindness and understanding. As an example, Yoita, the owner of our Bronxville Diner, connected with the Eastchester Community Action Program (ECAP) in Tuckahoe, sharing food with those in need.

Carl and his staff at Acme are working non-stop to keep the shelves stocked and providing curbside delivery. Steve Palm, owner of Underhill’s Crossing, stands outside his restaurant and has a smile and encouraging word for all that walk by. I was a lucky recipient of his optimism.

Many landlords have also stepped up by significantly lowering rent to help these tenants through the crisis.

Residents in the dozens have emailed me asking me how they can help. Just as we are known as a community that comes to the aid of neighbors and friends in times of illness and sadness, we must do the same for our business community.

To help, please refer to the list of our merchants below and eateries that offer pick up and/or delivery published in MyHomeTownBronxville and buy gift cards/certificates by email or phone message to be used to help merchants get back on their feet.

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.
