At around 8:30 pm, the Bronxville police started responding to a large number of calls reporting downed trees, fallen power lines, and fire.  According to the Bronxville police report at midnight, there were trees, branches, and power lines down in over 20 locations in the village. A tree also struck a car parked in the Kensington lot and a “tree log” hit a car on Masterton Road.

According to the Con Edison outage map, as of 10:30 am on July 18, power outages were concentrated on the Hilltop, in the Midland Avenue area, and on Tanglewylde, Summit, Hobart, and New Rochelle Road. According to Con Ed, power is expected to be restored in some of these areas by 5:00 pm. Click on the Con Edison outage map to get updates.

Chief of Police Christopher Satriale is urging residents to "use extreme caution when travelling through the village today. There are large limbs down blocking roadways and live power lines in many locations. If you see a power line, assume it is live and notify the police department." 

In an email alert at 10:45 am on July 18, Chief Satriale also provided the following update:

"Department of Public Works crews are busy clearing roadways of debris. Con Edison has multiple crews in the village de-energizing power lines and working to restore power. We expect to have most roadways opened by the end of the day.

"If you have not reported your power outage to Con Edison, please do so by calling 1-800-75CONED. Each individual outage must be documented even if your neighborhood outage has already been reported.

"The storms will be followed by extreme heat for the remainder of the week and weekend. Please refrain from unnecessary outdoor activities and be sure to check on friends, neighbors, and relatives who may require special assistance or care.

"In the event of an emergency, dial 911."

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.
