June 15, 2022:  Harry Poor, former Bronxville Administrator and current Orange County Deputy County Executive, has been re-appointed to the Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) Board.

“Harry has been asset to the MTA Board during his tenure and that is reflective in Governor Hochul reappointing him,” Orange County Executive Steven M. Neuhaus said. “Harry puts great effort in representing Orange County well and will continue to be an asset to the MTA Board and commuters.”

Porr was first appointed to the MTA Board in June of last year. The MTA is governed by a 21-member Board. Members are nominated by the Governor, with four recommended by New York City’s mayor and one each by the county executives of Nassau, Suffolk, Westchester, Dutchess, Orange, Rockland and Putnam counties (the members representing the latter four cast one collective vote).

“Our constituents need and deserve a voice in discussions about the future of transportation in Orange County and the region, and I look forward to continuing to collaborate with Harry Porr in his position on the MTA Board,” Senator James Skoufis said.

“I know that Harry will continue to perform his duties for Orange County residents admirably and I congratulate him on his reappointment,” added Senator Mike Martucci.

Porr’s term begins immediately and runs for the next 3 ½ years.

The MTA is North America’s largest transportation network, serving a population of 15.3 million people across a 5,000-square mile travel area surrounding New York City through Long Island, southeastern New York State, and Connecticut. Its network compromises the nation’s largest bus fleet and more subway and commuter rail cars than all other U.S. transit systems combined. The MTA’s operating agencies are MTA New York City Transit, MTA Bus, Long Island Railroad, Metro-North Railroad and MTA Bridges and Tunnels.

Neuhaus appointed Porr as Deputy County Executive in August of 2018. He previously served as the County’s Director of Operations for more than four years. Prior to that, Porr worked as the Village Administrator of Bronxville in Westchester County for 10 years. During his career, Porr also worked as City Manager of Newburgh, City of Long Beach in Nassau County and in the administration of former Orange County Executive Louis Heimbach.

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.
