Mar. 13, 2013:  Four male juvenile Bronxville residents were directed to perform 15 hours of community service after an investigation by the Bronxville police of an incident that took place on March 3, 2013, at approximately 2:55 pm.

The incident occurred when a black Acura occupied by four young males drove by a marked police car on White Plains Road at a high rate of speed.

When the officer attempted to stop the vehicle, the unlicensed 15-year-old juvenile driver failed to comply and evaded the officer by speeding onto a side street and then slowing down just enough for the three juvenile passengers, ages 14, 15, and 15, to jump out of the moving vehicle.

The driver then continued to speed away. One juvenile was taken into custody at the scene and later released to his parents. The vehicle and the other three juveniles were identified later as a result of the police investigation.

Chief of Police Christopher Satriale stated, "The operation of a motor vehicle by an unlicensed juvenile, coupled with the attempt to evade our police officer, created an extremely dangerous situation for the occupants of the vehicle as well as other motorists and residents. We are very fortunate that no one was injured as a result of this irresponsible behavior."

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.
