A Guided Tour

The Village of Bronxville, only 15 miles north of midtown Manhattan, is a charming English-style village nestled along the banks of the Bronx River in southern Westchester County in New York.

Just one square mile of glorious green hills and valley, the rural hamlet traces its roots back to the mid-1600's when legend has it that the chief of the Mohican Indians signed a deed transferring the land to white settlers. Names after Jonas Bronck, the dane who purchased vast tracts of land north of Harlem, the area grew into a prosperous farming community during the 18th century.

The Village was incorporated in 1898 within the Town of Eastchester with only 300 citizens. Now, more than 100 years later, more than 6,200 villagers call Bronxville home. With its proximity to the cultural and business center of the world - an easy 28 minute train ride to Grand Central Station - Bronxville has grown into a model suburban community, earning its reputation as a "suburb that is endlessly copied, but never matched."

Enchanting in its enduring charm, character and sense of history, Bronxville is filled with lush green yards, towering trees, beautiful homes, and a small-town business and community spirit that offers a much sought-after quality of life. As the New Yorker's architectural critic Paul Goldberger noted, Bronxville's "village-ness emanates from every street."
