Monday Message From The Mayor & Police Chief: Infection Rate Leveling Off; No Time to Let Up PDF Print Email

By Staff

Apr. 13, 2020: Below is an email message sent by Bronxville Chief of Police, Christopher Satriale, and Mayor Mary Marvin on April 13, 2020, at 7:39 PM.

"Good evening! Mayor Marvin and I are sorry we couldn't send a voice message this evening but the strong storms today have caused some widespread phone outages. We decided an email would be the best way to reach all of you.

As expected, last week was a very difficult week for all New Yorkers. Our death toll from COVID 19 crossed 10,000 with daily deaths topping 700 during the week.

Regrettably, we have to announce the death of Bronxville resident Walter James "Jim" Kenney from COVID-19. Jim always welcomed his friends with a smile, his laugh was infectious and his heart was enormous. We will miss you Jim.

Many of you continue to ask how you can help during this crisis.

We have learned that the local food banks are in desperate need of food. Your donations can help. As an example at feedingwestchester.org your $1 donation is enough for four meals. Please visit their website and help us fill up the food bank for those that rely upon those meals on a daily basis. 

The Department of Health has recommended banning the use of leaf blowers during this crisis. In light of today's storms, we will permit use of leaf blowers this week and will begin enforcement of a full leaf blower ban on Monday April 20th. Please share this information with your landscapers as we expect 100% compliance.

Despite the alarming death rates, the infection rate continues to level off in New York. This leveling or "flattening of the curve" is a direct result of the mitigation steps in place, particularly stay at home, social distancing, washing hands and more recently wearing face coverings in public.

This is no time to let up. Continuing these responsible practices will undoubtedly further flatten the curve and permit us eventually to return to some sense of normalcy.

Thank you for your continued cooperation and good night. Mayor Mary Marvin Chief Christopher Satriale"

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.
