Mary Marvin, Bob Underhill and Bill Fredericks Reelected in Village Elections Yesterday

By Staff

Mar.17, 2021: The Bronxville village election was held yesterday Tuesday, March 16, 2021.  Bronxville residents had the opportunity to vote for three candidates, Mayor Mary Marvin, Trustee Bob Underhill, and Trustee Bill Fredericks. All three were reelected and will serve two year terms.  The unofficial tally of election results as of 8am this morning indicates that a total of 922 votes were cast, with Marvin receiving 358 votes, Underhill receiving 332 votes and Fredericks receiving 232 votes.

Mary Marvin

Mary Marvin says that one of her focuses right now is the downtown area and merchants and making sure the village comes out of the pandemic in good shape.  She loves the job and says that there are always new challenges.  "What's most important," she says, " is to keep a fresh eye and be open to new perspectives."

Bob Underhill

Bob Underhill says that what he enjoys most about his work as Trustee and Deputy Mayor is the gratification he gets from completing various projects and, most importantly, "the people." He describes how great it is to get to know the police force, the people working in the DPW, and the great people in village hall and on the board. Most recently, Bob has been involved with the village's Police Community Relations Committee. 

Bill Fredericks

Bill Fredericks was a longtime member of the Bronxville village zoning board prior to becoming a Trustee. He says that one of Bronxville's great attractions is its green space, neighbors, and quiet streets and that many of the village's best attributes are the result of "the excellent village staff and people who are involved in the village through so many volunteer activities." In thinking about the role of trustee, Bill Fredericks says it's primarily one of oversight, but "new things always come up." He mentions the recent Concordia sale as an example. "I'll always be out there for people to contact or approach," says Bill. "I hope to hear from residents."

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.
