Bronxville

The Westchester County village of Bronxville, NY, in the town of Eastchester, lies about 15 miles north of Midtown Manhattan. Surrounded by New Rochelle to the east, the BronxRiver Parkway and Yonkers to the west, Tuckahoe and Eastchester to the north and Mount Vernon to the south, the tiny village covers only one square mile, with a population of just over 6,200. Bronxville, like many of its neighbors, is known for its affluence, but also for its community pride and picturesque small-town charm.

Bronxville's tree-lined downtown district along Pondfield Road and Kraft Avenue is the heart of this model suburban community. You'll find small, independent boutiques, a bookstore, restaurants and cafes and a triplex movie theater. Four Corners Square, a group of civic buildings, is here as well. Though there are some apartments, neighborhood streets are more likely to be lined with stately Tudor, Colonial and Victorian homes.

The Bronxville public school system is ranked among the country's best. Bronxville is also home to Concordia College, and Sarah Lawrence College is nearby in Yonkers. The village boasts more than 70 acres of park land, including athletic fields and woodlands. The Bronx River Parkway Reservation, Westchester's oldest park and the first linear park in the U.S., is a favorite for biking, walking, jogging and nature study.

Bronxville is about 16 miles from Midtown Manhattan, a 28 minute trip from the Bronxville station on the Metro-North Railroad Harlem Line.
