Letter to the Community from Village Justice Natasha Nordahl

March 13, 2024

Dear fellow residents of Bronxville,

I am excited to share with you that I am running for re-election to the position of Village Justice.  It is hard to believe it has been 3 1/2 years since I was first elected in September 2020 to serve in this role.
For those of you who are not familiar with the Village Justice Court, we hear criminal, civil (small claims) and landlord/tenant matters, as well as parking and traffic infractions. We also have the privilege of performing wedding ceremonies.  While many people believe that only residents of Bronxville come before the court, in reality individuals appear in our courtroom if they are alleged to have committed a crime in Bronxville, regardless of where they live. 
The Village Justice Court has been very busy lately. In addition to the full calendar of parking and traffic infractions and criminal matters, we have held several bench trials and many weddings. Interestingly, I recently had the privilege of presiding over a two-day jury trial, which was the first jury trial in the Village in over 30 years.  As part of the court's docket, the justices hear and decide motions, approve settlements and regularly interact with our neighboring courts on various matters. Finally, during the two weeks a month each justice is on duty, your village justices are on call to perform arraignments, which can occur at almost any hour of the day.
It has been my sincere privilege to serve the Village of Bronxville as well as those who have appeared before me, especially alongside my colleague, Justice William Primps.  It is my goal and practice for each individual who appears before our court to leave the court knowing that they have been treated with respect, they have been heard, and to appreciate that the law has been fairly applied. It is my commitment to my fellow residents to discharge my duties, each and every day, to the best of my ability.
Please come meet all of your village candidates on March 14 at the Bronxville Public Library from 6:30-8 p.m. 
Justice Natasha Nordahl

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.
