May 20, 2020: With social distancing guidelines, Memorial Day 2020 will be different from past years, but there are still ways to be together apart for Memorial Day.  Below are two great local events.

Bronxville School YouTube Memorial Day Program: Friday, May 22 at 9:30 AM

Due to COVID19, school isn't in session, but the Bronxville School District feels strongly that our Memorial Day celebration should continue. This has been a wonderful tradition in our community and a great way to honor our servicemen and women who gave their lives for our freedom.

Please join us and visit our YouTube district page on Friday May 22nd at 9:30 am to view this year's Memorial Day program. 

Our program will include as many of the traditions of the past while maintaining the safety of social distancing in our homes.
We hope you will join us for this important event. (Note: The livestream will become visible on the page once the event has started - your browser might require you to refresh the Youtube page for the live event to show.)

Tribute to Bronxville Veterans on Front Lawn of Village Hall from May 25 through July 4th weekend

The Village cannot have a Memorial Day Parade this year due to restrictions on gatherings and required social distancing. The Village was prepared to honor Vicki and Si Ford, who are moving back home to Minnesota after living in Bronxville for many years. They would have been the Grand Marshal's of Bronxville's 100th Parade. The Ford's have agreed to return next Memorial Day to be properly honored.

Even though there will not be a parade this year, the Village will honor veterans in a display on the front lawn of Village Hall on Memorial Day, May 25, 2020 through July 4th. Also, photos of veterans will be posted in selected Bronxville businesses.

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.
