Bronxville is just one square mile, but it is filled with treasures – beautiful homes, a charming downtown, eclectic restaurants and great shopping, rolling topography, and a 28 minute ride to Midtown on Metro-North.
Bronxville borders Yonkers, Mt. Vernon, Tuckahoe and Eastchester. Two colleges, Concordia and Sarah Lawrence, give the Village a special energy that only the collegial life can generate. A local in-town farmer’s market runs from May through November and features organic produce, freshly baked bread and artisanal cheeses. With so many homes within walking distance to the Village, places like the farmer’s market, Metro-North, shopping and movies are accessible on foot.
Downtown Bronxville has English-style architecture that give the Village a distinctive and cosmopolitan feel, with a plethora of unique retail stores. Mano A Mano features beautiful glassware, pottery, furniture and dinnerware. The Silver Spoon, owned by a Bronxville native, is the go-to place for baby and children’s gifts. Locals and students flock to Slave to the Grind for a great cup of coffee, a friendly and entertaining staff, and its 1970s vibe. A few doors down is Underhills Crossing, a sophisticated bistro with a vibrant bar crowd and a menu of oysters that come from Maine to Washington.
It is the sense of community and fast friendships made between cradle-to-grave residents, and transient and relocating families that make Bronxville special. Bronxville High School, located in the heart of the village, brings residents together, whether they have kids in the school or not. Concordia College sponsors cultural events that residents eagerly attend. For sport enthusiasts, the Village of Bronxville offers it own staff paddle tennis pro, numerous paddle tennis courts and The Bronxville Gentleman’s Platform Tennis League, and The Bronxville Ladies Platform Tennis League, where the love of the game is on display twelve months a year.
Bronxville may be small, but it has wide appeal for being known as the “suburb that is endlessly copied but never matched”.
