Bronxville

Why Live Here?
On Bronxville’s welcome page is the story of a noted local historian who commented that it is a “suburb endlessly copied and never matched.” A small village that is only one square mile, Bronxville is lauded especially for its beautiful architecture, its community-minded spirit, and its downtown comprised of primarily locally owned, independent shops, many of which have been there for almost 40 years. There are a number of popular restaurants interspersed with the shops. Part of the Town of Eastchester, Bronxville is 15 miles north of New York City. Much of the housing was developed in the 1800s and includes Adirondack, Arts and Crafts, Georgian, Cotswold, Victorian, Colonial, Tudor and many other influences, along with townhouses, condominium complexes and co-ops. One area of the village was originally designed as a retreat for writers, artists and musicians.

Just over 1,600 elementary, middle and high school students share one brick building in the Bronxville Union Free School District. The schools receive consistently high marks among organizations that measure academic achievement, and offer a focus on innovation, critical thinking, communication and creativity. Bronxville also is home to Concordia College and Sarah Lawrence College. The presence of the college students adds a nice demographic dimension to the village. Programs, performances and exhibits on the campuses offer great “things to do” for Bronxville residents.

The Village of Bronxville has over 70 acres of parkland including athletic fields, woodlands, and a very small part of the Bronx River Parkway Reservation. The Reservation is Westchester County’s oldest park and was the first linear park in the United States. It features ponds, wooden footbridge, and a vast variety of native shrubs and trees. There are tennis courts and a few playgrounds and the athletic fields at the school provide other sports and activity venues. For children and their parents Bronxville offers an after school program, and there are both full day childcare and a community action program available. Residents also love their library that offers a variety of programs, from a meditation circle to a book group.

Like other villages, towns and cities in Westchester County, Bronxville has its share of commuters going to Manhattan or to other business districts in other towns. Both the Metro North Harlem Line railroad, with a station in Bronxville, and surrounding roadways and highways enable efficient traveling to and from work. The peak-hour trip on train to Grand Central Terminal takes about 32 minutes. The drive to Midtown on Interstate 87 or the Saw Mill River Parkway takes about 20 minutes in light traffic.

Why We Love It!
It’s great to get away from the gym and bike on the Bronx River Parkway with no threat from cars! On Sundays from April to June and September to October there are “Bicycle Sundays” when part of it closes to automobile traffic for four hours. I catch the Parkway just outside of Bronxville. Great views, nice people, nice ride. ~ Chirag

Everybody told me to go to Lange’s Deli for lunch. I found out why! First, it’s been around for over 100 years, which is pretty cool, and second, they have the best sandwiches ever. It’s a “must stop here” for breakfast or lunch. ~ Tina
