By Richard Pink, President Rotary Club of Bronxville

Jun. 3, 2020: Pursuant to its motto “Service above Self,” the Rotary Club of Bronxville (RCB) continues its efforts to assist individuals, businesses, and front liners during the COVID19 crisis. 

We are immensely grateful for the generosity of the Rotary Club Foundation, our Rotary Club members, and so many generous members of this community in helping to build up this Emergency Fund. 

Because of this generosity, and on behalf of all the donors, the Bronxville Rotary Emergency Fund Task Force has been able to make a meaningful difference.

-We reached out to local business owners and are currently supporting 14 furloughed village employees in need with biweekly stipends of $320 each to keep food on the table until government support arrives, or until reemployment. We expect this need to continue as we learn of additional needs because many of those we support do not qualify for government assistance. 

-Coordinating with Mayor Marvin, we delivered eighteen $100 gift restaurant gift cards to our DPW unsung front liners who are out there week in and week out, keeping our village cleaned up. This special thank you had the duel benefit of also helping our restauranteurs (selected by the DPW workers) as they struggle to keep operating. 

-Similarly, our Task Force delivered restaurant gift cards to 50 Postal Service front liners who show up daily to keep the village mail moving. 

-Separately, Bronxville Rotary granted $5k to a sister club in Harlem to aid their efforts to feed their residents impacted by COVID.

-Our Foundation also responded to a separate request with a $5k grant to Groundwork Hudson Valley to help keep this amazing program afloat.

We will continue our support efforts, as long as funds allow.

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.
