Letter to the Community From Village Trustees Behrens and Knapp: Meet & Greet

To Bronxville Residents:

March 6, 2024; The next Village Election will be held on Tuesday, March 19th, 2024. Trustees Helen Knapp and Mary Taylor Behrens are both running for re-election as Village Trustees for the two open spots and we would very much appreciate your support.

Although running on different party lines, we are united in our goal for effective and efficient governance of the Village. We are committed to exploring diverse viewpoints and building consensus. We are dedicated to doing our best for this special community where we both grew up and have raised our families.

We plan to build on our past success and work tirelessly on ongoing issues. As Trustees, we have worked on important facility improvements such as the beautiful renovated Maltby Park and the new outdoors project at the Bronxville Library, crucial infrastructure needs including storm and sewer line maintenance and upgrades to traffic signals, as well as environmental initiatives such as reducing the use of gas-powered leaf blowers, creating a food scrap program and installing public EV charging stations. Looking forward, one of our top priorities remains the important issue of flood mitigation.  Along with our fellow Trustees Bob Underhill and Bill Fredericks, and Mayor Mary Marvin, we are honored to serve the Bronxville community.

We are hosting a “Meet and Greet” on March 14th from 6:30-8:00PM at the Bronxville Public Library. We would love to see you there.

Thank you for continued support and please vote on Tuesday, March 19th.

Helen Knapp, Village Trustee

Mary Taylor Behrens, Village Trustee

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.
