Bronxville is the perfect niche for college students or college graduates looking for a warm, cozy and quiet place to lay their heads. Look no further than the metro north down the street to get you the livest city in the world in less than 30 minutes. Now, let's talk about the foodies this place is boasting with awesome small eateries that will be sure satisfy your palate from italian to mexican you name it. If you are looking to a grab a cold beer, listen to some tunes and just chill for the night without the train ride to the city head over to Maggie Spillanes Pub. This place has great bar food and a great atmosphere, not to mention during the summer they have an awesome open rooftop so the party can continue. Bronxville is the best of both worlds, the truth is this little Lower Westchester County village packs a punch!
Aesthetically, Bronxville is quite lovely. The store fronts are attractive, the streets are clean, and the numerous parks are well-maintained and easily accessible. What is more, the architecture in old Bronxville is truly stunning. I really enjoy being able to walk through residential areas and admire the many beautiful estates. I also appreciate the relative safety that Bronxville provides. I almost never feel unsafe walking to and from the town. That being said, some of the town's residents have been openly hostile towards Sarah Lawrence Students, myself included. The students of color in particular have experienced numerous incidents of overt racism and the town's officials have done little to counter discriminatory sentiments in the residential populace.
This is a walking town. It is small. Schools and public services are excellent. Plenty of restaurants that are quite good. Also near to adjoining town shopping, transportation to NYC and White Plains. I only left because I wanted to purchase a house and couldn't find one I could afford. Only other issue was parking. Great town otherwise.
