Monday May 4, 2020 Message From The Mayor & Police Chief: 750 Masks Distributed PDF Print Email

By Staff

May 4, 2020: Below is a summary of the bi-weekly voice message sent by Bronxville Chief of Police, Christopher Satriale, and Mayor Mary Marvin on May 4, 2020, at 4:55 PM.

In this message, Mayor Marvin says that she and Bronxville Police Officer Cavallo passed out 750 cloth masks in the village of Bronxville on Saturday. A few hundred more will be distributed this week.

Chief Satriale says that he has received inquires about the health of the Bronxville police staff, and that everyone is fine. The Chief says that the police department was very aggressive in protecting the staff early on in the COVID-19 crisis.

The Chief says that he has also received questions about antibody testing. Antibody testing is not a village function. If people have questions about this, they should contact their doctors.

Mayor Marvin asks residents to please "remember our merchants." She says there is going to be a virtual shopping tour on Tuesday, May 3, at 3 PM in advance of Mother's Day.  Click here to learn more.

Mayor Marvin also says that this week is Teacher Appreciation Week and offers a big thank you to every teacher in town.

Finally, Chief Satriale says that they are working on a plan to acknowledge Bronxville School Seniors who are graduating in a way that will honor social distancing.

Mayor Marvin closes with the following quote from the Dalai Lama: "It is under the greatest adversity that there exists the greatest potential for doing good, both for oneself and others."

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.
