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 to Midtown), homes within walking distance of 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.
Your Beyond-Perfect Day in Bronxville:
Stretch your legs: Next, head to the Bronx River Reservation, Westchester’s oldest park, with its paved walking and biking path with wooden footbridges, ponds and hundreds of varieties of native trees.
Browse the farmers market: Right off the Bronx River Reservation, the Bronxville Farmers Market brings dozens of vendors to downtown every Saturday mornings from May through November.
Stop for lunch: Il Baccio Trattoria is the perfect place to people watch from a sidewalk table over lunch and gelato.
Stroll and shop: Spend a quintessential Bronxville afternoon browsing the eclectic mix of local businesses along Pondfield Road and Palmer Avenue, from boutiques to a bookstore and cheese shop.
End with dinner: All good things must come to an end—make it memorable with dinner at the family-friendly Pete’s Park Place Tavern or enjoy a date night at Park 143 Bistro and Fish, Urban Hamlet or Scalini.
Stay longer: Extend your getaway with a hotel stay.
