Governor Kathy Hochul Welcomed to Bronxville

By Niamh Hartnett, Bronxville Village Democratic Committee Chair

June 8, 2022: Bronxville supporters of Governor Kathy Hochul were delighted to welcome her to the Village on May 25, 2022. The Governor spoke to over 70 people on a range of topics, including the recent heart-breaking gun violence in Buffalo, NY and Uvalde, TX.

Audience members brought the Village’s chronic flooding issue to the Governor’s attention and heard from her regarding the recent 2023 budget, which includes a more robust reserve fund along with much-needed funding for health, the environment, and small business support after the past two years of COVID disruption.

As the first woman to serve the state of New York as Governor, Kathy Hochul brings a variety of public service experience in local government, as a Congresswoman and as Lieutenant Governor to the job. Her pragmatic, low-drama style stands in contrast to others who have held the top state position. Of note, her more collaborative and transparent governing style as well as her efforts to partner with another new elected official, the Mayor of New York City, Eric Adams.

Among the attendees were several grandchildren of former New York Governor Hugh Carey (pictured above) as well as local officials, including Assemblywoman Amy Paulin, Bronxville Village Trustees Mary Taylor Behrens and Bill Fredericks, Former County Legislator Ruth Walter and County Executive George Latimer.

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.
