May 13, 2020:  Below is an update on the status of upcoming elections.

June 9: Bronxville School Board Election and Budget Vote

On May 1, 2020, Governor Andrew M. Cuomo issued Executive Order 202.26 delaying school board elections and budget votes statewide until June 9, 2020.  

Two current Bronxville School Board Members, Jennifer Russo and Michael F. Finley, are running for reelection for a term of three-years.  

The election and budget vote will be conducted by mail, and "all qualified voters will be sent an absentee ballot with return postage paid."

June 23: Democratic Primary for President in New York State

On April 27, the New York State Board of Elections canceled the June 23 Democratic Presidential primary in New York State because of safety concerns during the coronavirus outbreak. 

On Tuesday, May 5, 2020, the Democratic Presidential primary was reinstated for June 23, 2020, due to a court order. This court order was in response to a lawsuit filed by former Democratic candidate, Andrew Yang, whose name was on the ballot despite suspending his campaign.  According to published reports, Yang claimed that his rights were violated when his name was removed from New York's primary ballot.

So, as of now, the Democratic Presidential primary will be on June 23, 2020.

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.
