Bronxville & Vicinity Arts & Entertainment

Bronxville

Bronxville Area Events

Bronxville has a unique energy all its own.  But there is no doubt that this small village and its surrounding areas have lots to offer when it comes to the Arts & Entertainment.

Here’s just a sampling of what’s happening…

Sarah Lawrence College, a private liberal arts college located in Bronxville (Yonkers), offers many great events that are open to the public. The college is known for its low student-to-faculty ratio and highly individualized courses of study. Whether it is a visual arts lecture or a basketball game, there is something for everyone. Be sure to check into their events page https://www.sarahlawrence.edu/news-events/events/

Concordia College-New York – includes an amazing art gallery and fantastic Conservatory.  The OSilas Gallery integrates visual arts into the cultural and educational life on campus and community by providing quality exhibitions and programs that are diverse in style, content, and media. Keep an eye out for their student exhibits and receptions https://www.concordia-ny.edu/community/

The Reformed Church of Bronxville has a Hand Bell Concert in December http://www.reformedchurch.org/calendar-of-events/?view=calendar&month=December-2018

A bit further north, we have The Performing Arts Center at Purchase College. This complex hosts four theaters and is located on the campus of SUNY Purchase. This Arts Center is considered a major professional, non-profit arts presenter in Southeast New York and Southwest Connecticut. The Center presents a broad range of performances that truly engage audiences through music, dance, theatre, family programming, comedy and film – there is truly something for everyone https://www.artscenter.org/

And another great place is the Tarrytown Music Hall.  This is grand old 843-seat Music Hall that is owned by a nonprofit educational and cultural organization established in 1979 and managed by a volunteer Board of Directors. This theater is bursting with energy and traffic as many people seek out their great programming https://tarrytownmusichall.org/

Lastly and locally, the Bronxville Chamber of Commerce is another great organization that sponsors numerous happenings in the village. As we head into the holidays, there are events that are fun for everyone – ranging from the town tree lighting, to the merchant ugly sweater party or small business Saturday – they list it all https://www.bronxvillechamber.com/

It is clear that Bronxville and vicinity boast a lot of action and engaging events for all to enjoy.   There is certainly something for everyone!

 

Westchester County Real Estate Sales Q3 Stats

Westchester County Real Estate

Quarterly Indicators Westchester County

Some economy observers are pointing to 2018 as the final period in a long string of sentences touting several happy years of buyer demand and sales excitement for the housing industry. Although residential real estate should continue along a mostly positive line for the rest of the year, rising prices and interest rates coupled with salary stagnation and a generational trend toward home purchase delay or even disinterest could create an environment of declining sales.

• Single-Family Closed Sales were down 4.1 percent to 1,916.

• Condos Closed Sales were down 1.2 percent to 401. • Co-ops Closed Sales were down 7.8 percent to 544.

• Single-Family Median Sales Price decreased 0.2 percent to $678,750.

• Condos Median Sales Price increased 1.8 percent to $392,000.

• Co-ops Median Sales Price increased 3.0 percent to $170,000.

Tracking reputable news sources for housing market predictions makes good sense, as does observing trends based on meaningful statistics. By the numbers, we continue to see pockets of unprecedented price heights combined with low days on market and an economic backdrop conducive to consistent demand. We were reminded by Hurricane Florence of how quickly a situation can change. Rather than dwelling on predictions of a somber future, it is worth the effort to manage the fundamentals that will lead to an ongoing display of healthy balance.

Why You Should Consider the Fleetwood Neighborhood

Fleetwood Neighborhood

Fleetwood, New York

When it comes to New York State, people need to be reminded that there is so much more to this incredible state than just New York City.  We previously dove into the benefits of living in Westchester County and here we take an even deeper look into a specific and completely unique area – the Fleetwood neighborhood.

This neighborhood was recently named the county’s ‘best kept secret’, but The New York Times and other reviews speak for themselves. Fleetwood is located on the north side of Mount Vernon closer to Bronxville.

Affordability is a huge draw for those looking to purchase their first house or COOP apartment or just downsize.  And the taxes are low.  It has a small town feel with modern conveniences.  And the business district on North Gramatan has much to offer with many lovely restaurants and shops.

The whole area covers about one and half square miles with a population of fewer than 20,000 people and is known for its diversity.

Fleetwood is also a very accessible area, driving-wise as it is super close to many major roadways.  It has its own Metro-North station and it only takes about 30 minutes via express train to get to Grand Central Station in Manhattan.

Fleetwood might be more of an open secret as the last couple of years, builders have begun planning luxury rentals and looking into other development projects.  If you’re in Westchester, check out Fleetwood.

Houlihan & O’Malley’s real estate agents are seasoned experts in Westchester County and the Fleetwood neighborhood.  Contact us if you are ready to buy or sell your home!

Westchester County

Westchester County

Harried New York City residents looking for a change are often pleasantly surprised by the county immediately to their north: Westchester.

Westchester County, with a population now approaching 1 million, was originally developed as a bedroom community for New York City about 100 years ago. The New York Central railroad built three lines – the Hudson, the Harlem and the New Haven – which carried yesterday’s hardworking New Yorkers into a veritable wonderland of space and greenery. In the intervening century, Westchester County has developed into an amazing amalgam of urban and rural landscapes, home to many who want to keep one foot in the city and one in the country.

In Westchester, residents can pick their living environment by size: large, medium, small. Residents can choose to live in one of its six cities –Yonkers, New Rochelle, Mount Vernon, White Plains, Peekskill and Rye City  – or its many towns and villages. Within Westchester’s cities, neighborhoods develop their own personalities much the same as they do in New York City. Bordered on the west by the glorious Hudson River –long an inspiration to both artists and sportsmen- and to the east by Long Island Sound, Westchester is an outdoor lover’s dream: kayaking, sailing, boating, jet skiing, fishing and swimming are integral parts of the summer scene.

Southern Westchester has close proximity to New York City with its excellent transportation which carries a good percentage of its population to and fro each day.  An exciting surge in transit-oriented development (TOD) in southern Westchester will soon provide new, luxury living space in pedestrian‑oriented communities to meet the rising demand for Westchester housing the NYC labor force is seeking.

Mid and northern Westchester towns and villages have less development and maintain a rural atmosphere, something made apparent in its farms –both the pick-your-own type and the horse farms.

Entertainment and sports opportunities abound: Concerts from rock to classical, local opera, various film houses, myriad opportunities for hiking, biking, culinary exploration, every type of outdoor sport including golf and horseback riding… the list can go on and on. A section of the Bronx River Parkway closes on Sunday mornings each Spring and Fall to accommodate Westchester’s bicycle riders.  The Old Croton Aqueduct trail alone provides almost 23 miles of fascinating riding!

Westchester has an extensive park system which is well-maintained. Beaches dot the eastern shores. A number of colleges and non-profit organizations sponsor talks, celebrations and events throughout the year.

Here’s a link to Westchester County Parks that will get you going on your exploration of this active, energetic county. There’s a little something for everyone!

Living in Eastchester, NY

Eastchester NY Real Estate

New York is full of many hidden gems and we are excited to share some fun facts as to why Eastchester is one of those places. Settled back in 1664, Eastchester has a rich history and lots to offer. Eastchester is bound by Scarsdale on the north, New Rochelle on the east, Yonkers on the west, and Mt. Vernon on the south.  And being just 20 miles outside of New York City make it a commuters dream. Tuckahoe and Bronxville are incorporated villages within the roughly 3.25 square miles.

This town boasts several amazing parks and is also home of The Treetures, a small magic forest nursery created by the local Girl Scouts many years ago (with over 1000 trees planted); visit www.treetures.com. See where it all started!

Some other iconic landmarks include St. Paul’s Church, which is a national shrine of the Bill of Rights, the Marble Schoolhouse and Hotel Gramatan.  These places are great for visitors and locals alike to enjoy.  It is also known as the “Cradle of American Golf” as Eastchester has had its share of champions.

The town offers numerous community events every year, many independently owned restaurants and lots of history/culture!  And even with a population of over 33,000, it stills has a small town vibe.

Houlihan & O’Malley have been helping people sell and buy homes in Eastchester and the surrounding areas for over 25 years.  Let us help you with your next real estate transaction.
