The 411: Pristine and picture-perfect, the tiny village of Bronxville ranks among the 25 highest-income communities in the U.S. Its close proximity to Manhattan (16 miles tomidtown), a majority of homes within walking distance to the Metro-North, plus a nationally ranked public school district are principal draws. Part of the larger town of Eastchester, Bronxville has a unique energy that isn’t limited by its one-square-mile size. The downtown is a tree-lined suburban utopia bookended by the Metro-North station and the Four Corners (a group of civic buildings) with tiny boutiques, an independent bookstore, a triplex movie theater, and a plethora of eateries in between. Other points of interest include Lawrence Hospital Center and Christian liberal arts school Concordia College. The village has more than 70 acres of parkland including athletic fields and woodlands.
