Something About Bronxville NY

Why do I love servicing Bronxville NY?

Besides liking to deal with a smart, savvy clientele (yes, they do exist elsewhere) often living in architecturally beautiful homes, it’s great to be in close proximity to Sarah Lawrence College. That’s where professor Joseph Campbell taught comparative mythology.

Campbell was a great influence on me having read his works when I was around 11 or 12 years old. His work complemented another big influencer in my life, Carl Jung, at the time.

I’ll never forget seeing the series of TV interviews Joseph Campbell did with Bill Moyers back in 1987 called The Power of Myth. It was great to see popularized interesting and important ideas proposed by intellectuals such as Campbell.

Another aspect of Bronxville village that I like is it’s gorgeous downtown area. Having grown up in Oradell, NJ, a well-to-do suburban town without a real downtown (it has mostly banks, hair salons, and only one restaurant), I appreciate what Bronxville has done with it.

Finally, and as a segue, I would add my keen interest in local history. Particularly, the colonial era when anything north of New Amsterdam (southern Manhattan Island) was actual wilderness. But not empty wilderness: the Siwanoy indians were here long before whites began settling the area.

As an avid nature lover (I eloped in front of a remote waterfall in Iceland witnessed by three sheep on the hillside above us and two ravens flying overhead), I still find it fascinating that the NYC area sprawl is such a recent thing. At home, looking westward out my window, I can see New Jersey’s Palisades. It still looks pretty much the same as it did for thousands of years before Bronxville village was recently incorporated in 1898.

Parks and Recreation

With over 70 acres of parks, athletic fields, woodlands[1], The Village of Bronxville has dedicated over 11 percent of its total area for public use. The main areas of open space include The Bronxville School’s athletic fields and Bacon Woodlands and relatively small sections of the Bronx River Parkway Reservation and Scout Field.


Owned by Westchester County, the Bronx River Parkway Reservation is the county’s oldest park. It features pleasant areas for bicycling, walking, running, and bird watching amid a quasi-natural setting of wooden and concrete footbridges, ponds, and woodlands. “The Duck Pond” is perhaps the most popular area of the Reservation.[2]

Located off Midland Avenue, parcels of the 22.9-acre sports and recreation grounds of Scout Field lie within Yonkers, Mt Vernon, and Bronxville. The Town of Eastchester, in which the Village of Bronxville is a part, manages the heavily used facility. The Bronxville School’s baseball, football, soccer, and cross-country teams use the field on a regular basis.[3]

The Bronxville School’s sports facilities include a running track, a football field, basketball courts, and three fields used for lacrosse, hockey, and other activities. Bacon Woodlands, a very small park, features a natural rock outcropping and a child play area.[4]

Classes average about 15 students each. Chapel School has more than 30,000 square feet of space for learning and athletics. Through its long-standing connection to Concordia College, students have access to much of Concordia’s athletic and performing arts facilities.[6]

Sarah Lawrence College

The college is a private liberal arts school established by real-estate mogul William Van Duzer Lawrence (1842-1927) and named in honor of his wife, Sarah Bates Lawrence (1846-1926).[7]

Known for low its small average class size and highly individualized course of study, according to Forbes magazine[8], it bases its academic approach after the Oxford/Cambridge system of one-on-one student-faculty tutorials, emphasizing independent scholarship, particularly in the humanities, performing arts, and writing.[9]

In 2018, U.S. News & World Report ranked Sarah Lawrence College 53rd in the National Liberal Arts Colleges category.[10] Princeton Review in 2016 praised the school as having the “best classroom experience” in all of America.[11]

Concordia College (New York)

The school offers associate, bachelor, and master’s degrees. Founded in 1881 as Concordia Progymnasium, the four-year coeducational liberal arts college is sponsored by the Lutheran Church–Missouri Synod and is a member of the Concordia University System.[12]
