Jan. 22, 2020:  Westchester County announces an open house with the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) in New Castle regarding Westchester County Airport.

The open house will include participation from HMMH, an environmental and transportation planning consultant which recently completed a noise study for the County, Westchester County Airport officials, and the FAA. 

It will be an opportunity to learn more about the study, air traffic procedures in the area and airport operations, in a more informal environment.

Westchester County residents are invited to attend at any point during the open house, where they will have the opportunity to speak one-on-one with a variety of experts, without formal presentations.

Latimer requested the open house after hearing concerns from the New Castle community, in an effort to better understand the issue. US Senator Charles Schumer, US Senator Kirsten Gillibrand and US Congresswoman Nita Lowey supported the request of this open house.

Wednesday, January 22
6 to 8 p.m.
New Castle Community Center
10 Senter Street
Chappaqua, NY 10514

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.
