Default White Plains to Washington Heights by train?

Relocating to New York from Arizona for work in September. The company wants to house us in White Plains, but I'd like to make a case for living in Midtown.

Can someone tell me exactly how I'd get from White Plains to 182 street in Washington Heights?

Obviously take the MTA-North, but do I take it all the way to Grand Central and then what? How do I get to the the 1 line? How long does that take? 30 minutes from White Plains to Grand Central, then another 30 to 182 street?

Thanks in advance.

your best bet might be to take your car to 242nd street area in the Bronx and park it there and grab the one train. I'm not from the area so I don't know the parking situation.

You could take the MetroNorth to 125th St., and then take the 2/3 downtown to 96th and then transfer for the 1 uptown to 181st. That might be too much work for you, but I don't really know another way as I'm not all that familiar with the area.

If the Marble Hill station is still in service, you could also take Metro North there, and pick up the Bx7 bus. That will drop you off at 181st and Broadway, right by the George Washington Bridge Port Authority station.

Default One or two of the...

Westchester Bee Line buses go from White Plains(where in WP I don't really know, probably near the Co Center) to 242 street at the #1 train where you could get the train to Wash Hts. But that Bee Line Ride would be very very long. it takes me 20 minutes to go from 242 to St Joseph's Med Center in Yonkers(3 miles) so you could imagine the time it would take to WP which is about 15-20 miles from 242 street

I think Jerrycrack has the best advice. Take the Metro-North to Fordham and take a bus from there across into Manhattan. Really it's much easier to get from White Plains to Harlem than it is to get to Wash Heights 'cause despite being further north Wash Heights is west of the Harlem Line tracks which go to White Plains. The Hudson Line (that goes up the west side to Yonkers) is a whole different line.

That's funny, because the moment I read the first post I thought, "This is going to be a mess."

You can see so for yourself here...
