July 10, 2024:  Have you noticed the new "Do Not Cross Double Yellow Line to Park" signs in town? 

In was reported in a spring Village Trustees meeting that local residents along with the Mayor and others have seen drivers cross the double yellow line in the village to park in spaces on the opposite side of the road. With parking close to a specific destination in the village sometimes difficult to find, these drivers are parking in the first space they see, even if it is across the street.

The new signs have been placed in town as a reminder to motorists not to cross the double yellow line to park, which is illegal.  The Bronxville Police Department has increased police presence in the village to enforce the law.

Mayor Mary Marvin explained "this is all part of the police department ‘s initiative to help us increase the quality of life in the downtown and I am so appreciative of their incredible focus and effort in this area and the good news is that residents are telling me that they are making a difference."

As a reminder, there is a parking lot in the village across from the tennis courts on Meadow Avenue which is a short walk upstairs to the center to town.

Here is a link to a recent letter from a MyhometownBronxville reader about this issue.

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.
