Address

The seminary address is:

575 Scarsdale Rd.
Yonkers, NY 10707

There is sometimes some confusion about the address to St. Vlad’s. If you look up the zip code 10707 it says “Tuckahoe”. But the actual city is Yonkers.

The Tuckahoe post office is the closest, and that is why the zip code is shared, but the village of Tuckahoe is actually part of the town of Eastchester. The seminary is in the city of Yonkers.

Sometimes you will also see the address written as “Crestwood, NY” – especially on older SVS books. The closest train station is Crestwood, and the seminary campus backs onto Crestwood lake. But Crestwood is also a village in the town of Eastchester.

If you get a NY driver’s license that says, “Tuckahoe” you might have trouble getting a Yonkers library card, and the closest libraries are in the city of Yonkers. Crestwood library, for example, is in the city of Yonkers, not the village of Crestwood!

You will have to tell the staff at the DMV that, even though the zip code is 10707, your address is actually in Yonkers. Sometimes they accommodate you, sometimes not. Banks and websites may default to Tuckahoe as well.

If your mail is sent to “575 Scarsdale Rd, Tuckahoe …” it will get to St. Vlad’s just fine, but there are times when it is better to have the right address on official papers.
