Bronxville Memorial Day Parade for 2021 is Cancelled

By Mary Marvin, Mayor of Bronxville

Apr. 21, 2021: Regrettably, Bronxville joins other communities in having to cancel our Memorial Day parade. We made the decision after careful consideration but the following factors did influence our decision making:

-The vulnerability of COVID to our Veterans, the group we want to honor front and center.

-The fact that many groups that provided the entertainment in our parade are not doing events like these this year.

-Logistically, some of the bands needed to be booked months in advance and of course, that was a non-starter.

-The impossibility of properly controlling the number of people who view the parade and proper spacing of the audience.

-Steady Village Covid numbers that are still quite significant.

The parade also would have been the 100th parade for Bronxville and our hope was to have it large and special with every Village organization involved if they so desired.  However, due to the lingering effects of COVID-19, none of our groups could put together special entertainment or commemorations.

God willing, we will be back next year with a very special 100th anniversary parade with Vicki and Si Ford coming in from St. Paul to act as our Grand Marshals. We will of course honor our Veterans in an appropriate way with particular emphasis on the Veterans that we have lost since last Memorial Day.

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.
