By Staff

Apr. 15, 2020:  If you haven't filled out the census as yet, please do.  It's important and very easy and fast to take online.  All you need is ten minutes.  

Just follow these three easy steps.

Go to my2020census.gov

Click on Start Questionnaire

The next screen asks you for your 12-digit Census ID, which appears in the paperwork you received at your home.  But, if you don't have it, it's okay. You can click on a link entitled "If you do not have a Census ID, click here" and proceed.

You then take the very short Census questionnaire.

It's quick and easy and important. 

As Mayor Mary Marvin explained in her column in February, census numbers affect "the distribution of both federal and state legislative representation and correspondingly affect programs in education, healthcare, law enforcement, and highway funding nationwide. 

She went on to explain that "as a result of the last census (2010), $675 billion was allocated for programs close to home, including senior lunch programs, highway congestion planning, and relocation, and 911 emergency systems – all requiring census driven demographic maps."

Finally, Marvin said, "scientists rely on the data to interpret the distribution of diseases and health hot spots, including cancer zones and obesity data. The census numbers are used to target interventions in at risk communities."

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.
