It's safe but I would only park in a Metro North garage on a weekday. On the weekend, you can use all the commuter spots that are usually reserved at all the other small stations for free.

Also, New Haven in particular is a pretty big station so getting from your car to the track you need may be a 10 minute walk. The only advantage of New Haven is that if you fall asleep on the train, you'll still make your stop since it's the last stop.

I wouldnt mind going to the other closeby stations, which are safe? I heard Bridgeport is bad but not sure about the others
One can also get from New Haven to NYC by bus (Peter Pan/Greyhound) but I don't think the buses run as often as the trains and since you are going to Long Island probably your best option is to drive.
