I disagree with Mr. Bernet's assesment of Bronxville NY. I was born theretoggle quoted messageShow quoted text
and lived there for 17 years. My family and friends of my family most
definatley lived there prior to 1960, both owning and renting property. Yes,
they were Jewish. There is a Jewish population there although there is no
shul in Bronxville proper. Most people attend shul in Eastchester, Yonkers,
or Scarsdale, with Chester Heights, Mt. Vernon, Tuckahoe and New Rochelle
also being extremely close. Town lines get very strange and difficult to
sort out in the Chester Heights, Bronxville, Eastchester, and Mt. Vernon
area where they all border each other. It does not go by zip code.
Try reading the book"Pathway to a Village" which is a book on the history of
Bronxville. There is an extremely helpful historical society in Bronxville.
they have always been very friendly to me and if you are searching your
family there it is definatley worth talking to them. The Westchester County
Archives are also a wonderful rescource.
Bronxville is a wealthy, snobbish dormitory town in southern Westchester,
