Default Newtown to NY City: Best train options? Brewster Parking?

Hello all,

My wife and I are shortly moving to Newtown and are going to be commuting to the city in the short-term. We wanted to know what was the best way to get into the City. From what I understand, its driving to Brewster Train Station, parking then taking Metro North.

My main concern is going to be parking in Brewster, is there any available? is there a wait list? Do you have to get there at 5am to get a spot?

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

There is a shuttle bus that runs between a commuter parking lot in Danbury and the Brewster train station. You can use this if you find that there isn't any parking available.

Parking at Southeast is much more plentiful than in Brewster, but it's a little further of a drive.

Where in Newtown you are coming from also makes a big difference. I looked at one home off 25, close to Monroe and Easton, and from there would rather drive back roads to the Fairfield station.
