Bronxville

Along the banks of the Bronx River, only fifteen miles from Manhattan, lies one of the nation’s most beautiful villages - Bronxville.

From its mid-seventeenth century beginnings, Bronxville has had the reputation of being “exclusive.” Today, its English-style architecture, tree-lined streets and elegant mansions have made it the choice of many Wall Street and Madison Avenue executives, show business luminaries as well as regular people who find it a congenial place to live. At the intersection of two wide and gracious boulevards, Midland Avenue and Pondfield Road, the one-mile square village has an array of boutiques and shops offering exquisite merchandise.Bronxville schools are noted for their high quality.

Although the average price of a single family house is approximately $1.7 million, Bronxville also has more affordable housing in co-op apartment buildings and small, but equally charming, cottages. For more information, please visit the Bronxville Chamber of Commerce and the Town of Eastchester.
