From the Office of Amy Paulin, Assemblywoman, District 88, New York State Assembly


Editor's note
:  Assemblywoman Amy Paulin represents the 88th New York State Assembly District, which includes Scarsdale, Eastchester, Tuckahoe, Bronxville, Pelham, Pelham Manor, and parts of New Rochelle and White Plains.

Feb. 21, 2018:   Assemblywoman Amy Paulin is sponsoring her third annual “There Ought to Be a Law” contest for students in grades six to eight throughout the 88th Assembly District.

The contest asks students to identify a problem impacting New Yorkers that could be solved by creating a new law. One first-place winner will be selected and have the opportunity to see his or her idea be introduced as a bill in the New York State Assembly and potentially become a new law. The winner will have the opportunity to join Assemblywoman Paulin in Albany, where he or she will be acknowledged on the floor of the New York State Assembly and have a private tour of the state capitol. Second- and third-place winners will receive official citations from the New York State Assembly.

Jakob Ferrara from Pelham Middle School was last year’s contest winner. The then seventh-grader was awarded first place for his proposal to mandate free pre-K for all four-year-olds in New York state, giving all students the advantage of early learning.

All contest submissions are due by April 1. The students whose proposals are selected will be notified on April 15, with the first-place winner taking a trip to Albany sometime in late May or early June.

Interested students need to write an essay (750 words maximum) detailing their proposed idea for a law. There are no limitations on what a student can recommend. Creativity is encouraged. Please contact the district office for entry forms. Students can also download the form and email their entry or simply fill it out online at www.amypaulin.com.

Middle school principals, teachers, and staff can contact the district office for more information by either calling 914-723-1115 or emailing CLOAKING . Any inquiries or submissions should be directed to Lisa Hofflich.

Bronxville Overview

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.
