Have You Noticed the Construction Around Bronxville?

By Staff

August 10, 2022:  Have you noticed the construction around Bronxville and wondered what's going on?

In a recent column, Mayor Mary Marvin noted that streets throughout the village are being milled and repaved and the curbs are being repaired.  She also mentioned that the village tries to coordinate its projects with Con Edison "so recently paved roads do not end up subsequently being torn up for utility work."

According to an email that went out today from Village Administrator, Jim Palmer, the projects below are currently underway.

-Con Ed Gas Line Installations at Midland Avenue:  Con Ed’s third phase of the new gas line down Midland Avenue is largely complete and most work is now confined to gas service down Willow Road and Hawthorne Road will be repaved before the end of the month.

-Con Ed Gas Line Installations at Locust Lane: Gas line installation will be completed this week and remaining work will be limited to Sturgis Road. Locust Lane to be repaved later this month.

-Midland/Pondfield and Gramatan/Pondfield Traffic Signals:  The Village’s contractor Verde Electric is installing all new traffic signals and equipment at these intersections.  All efforts are being made to have a majority of the underground work completed this month.

-100 Pondfield Condominium Residences:  The reconstruction of the former storage warehouse is almost complete.  Final utility work is underway now so the site (including sidewalk, roadways) can be fully restored before September.

-Sanitary and Storm Sewer Repairs/Cleaning: Various repairs underway. 

-Sidewalk Repairs and Stump Removals:  Various locations being prepped for tree replacement this fall.

Palmer thanked villagers for their "patience while these projects are completed."

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.
