The Glenwood Lake area, New Rochelle 10801 has always been very desirable and generally covers Lincoln Avenue to Webster, and over to Mayflower Avenue.
Glenwood Lake itself covers 6 acres, and is a great place where you can go and while away an afternoon in a tranquil setting. It was originally named after a Captain Bergholz who owned a marvelous estate along with his wife, Mary (the entry pillars still remain at Holly Drive). The lake’s name was changed to Glenwood Lake when it was bequeathed to the city, and while the city owns the lake, the Glenwood Lake Association takes care of it.
They publish a newsletter entitled “The Back Fence.” It is an authoritative newsletter, full of good tips, news on how the association has a ‘clean-up day’ around the lake – all to make it that always desirable community, rich in spirit and energy.
John Muir, a once prominent builder in the area, resided not far from the current location of the New Rochelle High School. He lived in Wykagyl Park , had a 4 car garage while the now Muir Place was originally a dirt road, and called Taylor’s Lane. The city of New Rochelle paved the roads in the area, and Taylor’s Lane was renamed Muir Place.
Muir Place is located just two blocks from the famous Daniel Webster Elementary Magnet School.
