Monday April 20, 2020 Message From The Mayor & Police Chief: Please Wear Face Coverings and Support Local Merchants PDF Print Email

By Staff

Apr. 20, 2020: Below is a summary of a voice message sent by Bronxville Chief of Police, Christopher Satriale, and Mayor Mary Marvin on April 20, 2020, at 4:30 PM.

Chief Satriale reported that there were 478 deaths related to COVID-19 in New York State yesterday. He noted that it's a high number, but that the number of daily deaths continues to decrease.

The Chief also stated that antibody testing is beginning today in New York State. He explained that it's "a random selection of people for antibody testing" and that the goal of the testing is to try to determine the percentage of people within the State who may have been infected and self-resolved without symptoms.

Chief Satriale also said that you can find the most accurate information about COVID-19 on the CDC website and on the New York State Department of Health website.

A recent Executive Order from Governor Cuomo requires people to wear face coverings "when in a public place and unable to maintain, or when not maintaining, social distance." The Chief said that many people in the village are not wearing face coverings. This is troubling because the Bronxville business district is dense, and the sidewalks are narrow. As a result, as the Chief said, "It is nearly impossible for you to comply with social distancing." The Chief and the Mayor are urging people to wear face coverings if they are in the business district.

The Chief also asked people to call the police desk if they see a group congregating or if they see something out of the ordinary. 914-337-0500.

Mayor Marvin said that her focus right now is to have a vibrant village when this is ended. "Our merchants need us now more than ever," said Marvin. They extend their thanks for what you have done already. Marvin noted that those suffering the most are the non-food businesses. They are available to take phone messages and emails. They can do curbside pickup or ship a gift.

Mayor Marvin also said that the hospital workers appreciate the messages from young people throughout the village in windows and on lawns.

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.
