Letter to the Community: Thank You For 47 Great Years From John Cola of Studio One

Dear Friends,

Oct. 14, 2020: Don’t know where to begin, but there was a beginning 47 years ago. I feel I was very fortunate to land in a very special community Bronxville. During these past decades, I have met some of the most incredible and interesting people that patronized my salon, Studio One, with many of whom I have developed lasting friendships.

During the half-hour plus that my clients sat in my chair, they received great cuts, and we had wonderful conversations. While I have not traveled the world, I feel like I have been to the most interesting and exotic places on earth through the time spent with these wonderful and caring people.

One of the things I am most proud of is to have serviced three generations and, on a rare occasion, a fourth generation.

I don’t want to leave out our great clients from the surrounding towns. I would not want to leave out my wonderful staff who have been on this journey with me for almost half a century. We have so many great memories. Some have moved on, but many have been with me 25, 35, and 40 plus years. I am extremely fond of each and every one of them.

We now have a new owner and a new beginning. We will work with them, introduce them to this great town, and wish them much success and happiness.

So grateful.

John Cola

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.
