Letter to the Community: Thank you Mayor Mary Marvin

Nov. 25, 2020: Thanksgiving is a time to thank those who have impacted our lives. In this particularly difficult year, we, as friends of Mayor Mary Marvin, would like to acknowledge some of the many gifts she has given to the community for which she cares so deeply.

During the past nine months, Mary has been a beacon of light. She led the village through the dark early days of COVID-19 when Bronxville was at the epicenter of the health crisis. She has worked around the clock with Police Chief Christopher Satriale to keep residents informed and up to date on the best ways to protect themselves and others from COVID-19. With Mary’s leadership, the support of the village trustees, and her strong connections with NYP-Lawrence Hospital and the school, Bronxville’s COVID-19 cases have been kept to a minimum.

Recognizing that the heart of our village is our local merchants, Mary worked tirelessly with the Chamber of Commerce and local residents to set up BXV for BXV, a multi-initiative program to ensure the survival and vibrancy of our downtown with financial support. Part I of the Merchant Loan program has already aided 16 local businesses: Part II will be coming soon. Additionally, she supported our local restaurants by expanding sidewalk dining, using space that is usually reserved for parking!

Mary is one of the smartest people we have ever met. She is also known for her warmth, enthusiasm, humor, courage, and unparalleled talent for friendship and concern for others. Her love of family is legendary—which includes the 6,000-plus Bronxville residents. Mary loves a good story and is a terrific raconteur. She is creative and is a wonderful teacher and role model on how to do an excellent job seamlessly. She has dedicated untold hours to our village, and yet when you meet her on Pondfield Road, she always has a beaming smile. Above all, Mary is the voice of reason.

Mary, a heart is not judged by how much you love but how much you are loved by others!

Happy Thanksgiving, Mary, from your grateful friends!

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.
